This weeks Workout Wednesday, has lots of hidden tricks and tips inside. But I want you to mainly focus on a specific part. Sorting in Tableau can be a bit of a pain, it has gotten much better with nested sorting. But this challenge allows you to sort A – Z, Z – A, Profit Asc and Profit Desc, now how do you do that?

I also still love Viz in Tooltips, the novelty certainly hasn’t worn off. So this week I focused on a heavily formatted Viz in Tooltip.
