      Dates play a crucial role in many visualizations, BUT working with Dates in Tableau can present challenges in some instances. However, Tableau is extremely flexible and gives us the tools to overcome these obstacles to create great visualizations. This Think Data Thursday is about various issues that arise working with Dates, the methods to overcome them, and give a basic overview of why Tableau treats dates the way that it does. This spans basic ideas (DATEPART vs DATETRUNC), all the way to more advanced topics (Like Relative Period to Date functions). We discuss DATE formatting tricks and some of the idiosyncrasies that go along with these techniques.
