    Plotting Events on Ordinal Scale by Date


      Hello Tableau Community! Hoping you can help me get unstuck:


      I am attempting to create a time series, but I do not want the spacing between marks to correspond to the time interval between the events they represent (or to be grouped into a month, week, day, etc). In other words, I want my marks to appear chronologically, but on an ordinal scale rather than an interval scale. I'm thinking there must be a relatively simple way to do this using a Rank or Index function, but I can't seem to figure it out.

      Thanks in advance for your help.
