    What level of detail to show?

    Esther Twain

      Hey all,

       

      This exercise is nothing new here but I have a different question.

       

      profitable days per month.png

       

      How does Tableau know we are asking it to count and show us the days indeed? Is it because there is no lower level of detail in the Date dimension?

      I mean, the LOD only sums the Profit for each order date. How does it know it has to filter exactly by days?

       

      Thanks,

      Esther
