## 2024 Week 07 – Column interaction sorting

Introduction It’s already week 7 of our #WorkoutWednesday challenges (whoa, time flies…). In this challenge, I’d like to explore one aspect of the column multi-selection interaction in CRM Analytics: sorting.

## #WOW2022 Year End

2022 has gone so quick, like every other year prior, but the years do seem to be getting quicker. I just wanted to write a quick blog on achievements this year!

## #WOW2022 | 46 | Let’s build a map!

Introduction Man, sometimes the #datafam is just so very inspiring.

## State of #WOW2020 and Beyond

Well, it’s the end of 2020. It’s been a tough year for everyone. We know this for so many reasons. And it’s reflected participation rates (and page rates) of Workout Wednesday challenges.

A couple weeks ago, 2020.3 was released and with it came a whole host of new awesome features and functionality! As always, #WOW2020 is here …

## 2020 Week 32: COVID-19 New Case Trends

Introduction This week I wanted to post a WOW challenge derived from a chart I’ve been reporting on for the past 7 months: a cartogram of states showing rolling-seven day average of new COVID-19 cases by state. For this challenge you will use data from Tableau’s COVID-19 Data Hub. I picked this challenge because working …
