Joe Mako Aug 12, 2012 2:03 PM (in response to nickster)There are a few ways to accomplish what you are looking for. Please provide some sample data sets that represent the data structure and content you are connecting to. does not need to be real data, just something that represents the situations you are dealing with so the logic you want can be clear when you also provide what final result you want Tableau to produce for your small sample made up data.

3. Re: calculating utilization rates
nickster Aug 14, 2012 3:38 PM (in response to nickster)Attached is some sample data that represents the structure of the data I am working with. I am working with 2 tables  events and users. In the sample workbook I am working off a left join of users and events. However, I have also added the data sources independently as single tables and an inner join as well in case useful
I am trying to solve 2 problems
1) I am trying to calculate the percentage of total users that have event type a and event type b transactions by week and day. I am able to calculate the cumulative number of users by registration date, but i am having trouble linking this to number of users by week and day that had an event transaction and getting a percentage for this.
2) i am trying to group users into segments based on number of average number of event transactions per week. to calculate average event transactions i divide total events by tenure of that user and then write an if statement that groups users into different segments based on usage level. the problem I am running into is that the segment calculation is applied to every row of data in the joined table, and doesn't give me the result I want.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
