2020 Week 20: How much do these states contribute to the total?


What’s up #WOWzers! Have you heard the news? Tableau just release a feature-packed release with v2020.2. So many cool new features to try out and the #WOW2020 enjoyed my new feature challenge so much last time, they invited me back to do a challenge for this release too!
One new feature that I’d been looking forward to and playing around with in the beta were the improvements to Set Actions! We now have the ability to remove dimension members from a set via interactivity! And that is the focus of our 20th challenge of #WOW2020…for feature release 2020.2. That’s a of 0’s and 2’s 🙂
So your challenge is this: Create a dashboard that allows the user to select any state(s). Clicking a state in the map, will add them to the proportional set. Then on the right sidebar,  allow users to select from the list of selected states which will remove them from the proportional set.
