Hi Joe. Thank you for the help. When I change the “Total Using” for “AGG(Utilization%)” to “Automatic” it gives me 385%, which isn’t right. It should be 96%.

Is there another way to get the Grand Total for “AGG(Utilization%)” to calculate SUM(On Hand Unit)/ Avg(Max On Hand Unit per Building)?

Do you think because I’m using Utilization%=SUM([On Hand Unit])/AVG([Max On Hand Unit per Building])? Maybe I need to change AVG([Max On Hand Unit per Building]) to a total average sum. I’ll test this out and see if it works.

]]>Thanks, Joe!

]]>You can right-click to bring up the context menu for the pill “AGG(Utilization%)”, and under “Total Using” change the option to “Automatic”. The option for “Average” overrides the expression in the Totals sections and instead performs an average of the four percentages.

]]>I’ve created a sample here: https://public.tableau.com/profile/sheng5683#!/vizhome/Utilizatio_TestGrandTotal/Sheet1?publish=yes

The Grand Total for “Utilization%” is currently showing 99% but it should be 96% (255/265= 96%). Not sure how to customize the grand total for Utilization% or if there’s a way to show it in the Grand Total.

]]>Hi,

Since that post Tableau has added the ability to make separate legends for each Measure in Measure Values, so the simpler way to do this is to put Measure Values on Color and then right-click on it and turn on Use Separate Legends, then format the legend for Sales to be a single color and then use the desired palette for Profit Ratio.

]]>Hi, without knowing more about the data and your view I can’t answer your question, I’m sorry, Please post a link to a packaged workbook with sample data (for example a Tableau Public link) and I can take a look, thanks!

]]>Hi, the “time” formatting is being applied to a specially constructed number. Tableau’s total using functionality is performing a secondary aggregation on the value, which in this case is the specially constructed number and not the original value. My suggestion would be to use an INCLUDE Level of Detail expression of the form AVG({INCLUDE [the dimensions in your view] : [the original measure]}) and then format that, then use the default totals.

]]>Hi, computing the origin & destination is necessary for you to be able to get to the distance calculation. If you’re still looking for help with this please link to a packaged workbook with sample data, or feel free to reach out to me at jonathan (dot) drummey (at) gmail.

]]>Hi,

Tableau only has two ways to lay out axes – using time or numbers (integers or decimals). This dd:hh:mm:ss formatting is using a (fake) time format for number value and therefore the axis is being laid out in base 10. What I’ll typically do is a date or datetime field as the axis and turn off Show Header and Include in Tooltip, and instead use reference lines and/or mark labeling to provide context.

]]>Hi, there are multiple ways I can interpret your question, could you put together a sample workbook and put it up on Tableau Public or somewhere and give me a link and I can take a look?

]]>Have you encounter or know how to customize grand total percentages? For example, I want to get the grand total “current on hand unit count” column divided by the grand total “max capacity for on hand unit count” column to get the capacity percentage= “Utilization %”. I hope this makes sense. ]]>

can you please help me in achieving this https://community.tableau.com/thread/339660

]]>Hi,

I replied on the site. Cheers!

]]>I am having trouble when showing a Measure as dd:hh:mm:ss. The value itself is good but when I show totals as average, it display more than 60 in hours or minutes or other fields. Have you got any solution to this?

I see you use this calculations as dimensions and sadly that does not fit my needs.

Thank you in advance!

Dani
