    How do I add a string field to the data.  It is not a calculation of any other field.  It is a new field that I need to add.

      Once a quarter I must Import all data as a snapshot in time.  This is what I use for my quarterly KPIs.

      To show that this particular snapshot is for the associated quarter I must enter a text field called QuarterID, (e.g. FY1314Q1, FY1314Q2...).


      How can I add the string field called QuarterID and populate it as FY1314Q1 for all data records?


      I am new to the tool, just 2 days old in Tableau time, please, be as descriptive as possible.
