I keep a list of calculated fields in an Excel document, by Workbook.
There is a tool Andy Cotgreave developed that will allow you to audit workbooks and see which fields are being used, etc. You can find it here: http://community.tableau.com/thread/118450
If you're using server, you can create your own views based on the work on your Server:
Have you tried using the 8.1 Beta's Folder functionality in the data window to 'group' Dims/Msrs? That doesn't help much between workbooks but it should help within a single workbook.
I hope you will support the idea to have Measure/Dimension folder structure in Tableau Data Extract (TDE).
If you have 100s of dimensions and calculations, this feature will be handy to keep one source of data rather sharing one workbook templates.
Thank you for the suggestion and links. Using Excel sounds like a good idea. And the TWB auditor looking intriguing.
No, I haven't tried the new 8.1 beta. How stable is the latest beta version?
Honestly I just got the latest version (7) but have not had the time to explore it fully. I know we are getting close to launching 8.1 so I would imagine that version 7 of the Beta is quite stable.
Maybe someone else on here has better input on the problem areas to avoid. Are you part of the beta forums to look for that kind of stuff?
