    How to incorporate metadata for 'Data Reliability' as part of a measure?


      I have the following situation: I have a number of data measures that are time series that I have loaded into tableau through excel. The form of the data is:


      Date      Country                GDP       CPI         RealEstatePrices


      For each of the measures I have a metadata field called ‘Quality Score’ that specifies how reliable each measure is on a scale of 1-10. The quality score is just a scalar value.

      I would like to know how I could best integrate this Quality Score with the time series data such that I could use it for coloring the data or filtering it (for example, if I do line plots of 3 measures over time I want to color code the lines according to the quality score for each measure). This would allow my analysts to identify which data is most reliable in their dashboards.


      Any thoughts on how to do this?
