First off it was great! If you don’t go, why not? You should. From the […]
  • Conditional Formatting Like a Boss - Finally we have a use case to do Conditional Formatting and it is a bit of a Hack, when its a double whammy of conditional formatting in a cross tab its a double hack. Everyone uses the RAG status well when using Excel, and you would think a nice highlight table in Tableau would work great. […]
