Mine would also definitely be some of our newer members who have really been out there helping - Brad, Josh immediately come to mind.
And of course Shawn's contribution to making the forums a thriving community has been immense. Great to see you back after your sabbatical, Shawn.
And great to see the growing list of regular contributors...
Just want to publicly thank community members:
- Joe Mako;
- Andy Kriebel
- Mike Christani
for all the help they've provided - in the forum and off-line - to share some of the nuances of Tableau from when I first started using it around ver 4.1 to ver 8. I've also lurked through many of their posts taking notes and learning more and using many of their teachings.
And a tip of the hat to
- Jonathan Drummey: I've also been lurking through many of his posts to learn more about Tableau and have adopted several of his practices as a result. Go blue to orange color scales in lieu of red to green. And love that calc and workbook showing how to make Pareto graph w/ a variable 80% parameter and an automatically calculating and variable "20%" intercept line.
As a result, I do my best to "pass it forward" and share my knowledge w/ other Tableau users.
I would certainly add my tuppence halfpenny worth of praise on Richard and Jonathan who have helped me enormously in what I am trying to achieve.
Richard for setting me on my way with a lot of techniques and help with setting up my School Analysis systems. A lot of which I will never understand.
Jonathan for that fantastic Workbook that shows a lot of techniques to Colorise Grids. It has been invaluable.
A big thank you to you guys, I really do appreciate it immensely.
Also a big thank you to all who have helped and responded to silly questions.
