    Tableau Prep and a Manual Sort?

    Cindy Schmelzer

      Can I manually sort the contents of a field in Tableau Prep like I can in Tableau Desktop? I would rather set the default in Tableau Prep once, rather than every time I use this data source in a workbook. I've hunted and can't find anything on this.  Hopefully I've just overlooked it!

       

      For example, Student Class cannot be in alphabetical order - it needs to be in the order you see it below.

       

      Dual Enrollment

      Freshmen

      Sophomore

      Junior

      Senior

      Graduate

      Transient

      All Others

       

      I've only seen in Tableau Prep the ascending/descending options below:

       

      In Tableau, I can choose manual to accomplish the correct order:

       

      Any solutions on this one would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you.
