Helen wanted to see how we can easily create a 100% stacked bar chart.
We looked at the Tableau concept “Order of Operations”, which is a key principle in how visualisations calculate and render data in a view. We talked briefly how you should consider this to ensure calculations are correct, but also how it can be used to your advantage.
We then looked at the first 5 use cases from the Ken Flerlage blog post “20 Uses for Tableau Level of Detail Calculations (LOD’s)”:
1. Duplicate Rows
2. Single aggregate
3. Isolate a specific value
4. Synchronised Chart Axis
5. Max & Min values for insights
