    How to Chart Count(Orders) By Order Date and Count(Orders) By Ship Date Side-By-Side?

    Joe Cole

      I'm new to Tableau, so hopefully there isn't something simple that I've missed here...

       

      I'm experimenting with the "SuperStore Sales" sample excel data that comes with the Tableau software.  The Orders table has an Order Date and a Ship Date.  I'd like to chart the number of orders that were ordered on a day/month/year alongside the number of orders that were shipped on a day/month/year.  Since they both use a date, it makes sense for these 2 measures to share the same dimension (x-axis), however I'm having a hard time figuring out how to get that done in Tableau.

       

      Can anyone help me?
