Yes, we could have a 'Newsletter' email for topics on Tableau Education K-12 once a week. Great idea.
I was thinking about how to push Tableau reports themselves to others, but that is a really great idea too! This doesn't quite fit the bill, but I found that clicking my personal icon at the top righthand corner and selecting Preferences I could adjust my email settings to get more notifications from this group. Maybe that'll help us stay up to date in conversations in here.
What kinds of things would you most hope to see people talking about in that 'Newsletter' email, Olga?
I like to get idea from others on how to present the data. I am learning more and more where sometimes I just have to see the Dashboard to figure it out. However, other times I get stuck on writing calculations.
I hear you, Olga! Calculated fields stump me often too.
Would love to hear how others have gotten better at them. Does anyone have tips on particular types of calculations that are good to work up to once you've got the basics down?

I'd like to add 2 cents to this topic.
If you want your audience to engage with the content you are creating for them, don't take the passive "push" based approach.
Approach the creation of dynamic content in Tableau like you would designing a popular website. You want to have traffic proactively driven to your site/viz/workbook, etc once it's published. It should be so valuable to them, it's indispensable. They become habituated to starting the day interacting with the content you publish to Tableau Online / Tableau Server.
In fact in Tableau Server and Tableau Online, there is a report under the Status menu entitled "Traffic To Views". During the deployment engagement I explain that this report should be used the same way a web analyst would use traffic to a website. The purpose is to understand engagement trends, anticipate spikes in traffic and retire old, unused, un-engaged content.
The better the quality of the content, and the more accessible you make it, the more likely you will see wide audience useage and deeper, longer engagement by your audience.

I also have questions on user engagement. I have a request from an administrator which is trigger based notification. She would like to receive an email if average daily attendance dips below a threshold.
I am very new to Tableau so I am not even sure if that is possible. Anyone know?
