    How to flag figures which have changed since last report refresh?

    Diarmuid O'Connor

      I have a particualr requirement for a Sales report which will be displaying real time data,


      When the report is refreshed and the latest sales figures are displayed, is there any built in function within Tableau which could allow me to display the figures which have changed since the last refresh? For example, I may want to display any updated sales figures in a different colour for emphasis.


      Or is this something which would need to be handled within the data source itself? For example, the previous sales figures could be stored in a seperate table. The report data source could then use this table for comparison purposes and the report data source could be updated to state what sales figures should be represented with each colour.


      The idea behind the report is to be able to display which sales people are making sales and to acknowledge these new sales in real time.
