This is a specialized course that just covers Tableau’s LOD Expressions. Tableau LOD Expressions are probably the hardest topic to fully understand, or at least it was for me when it first came out. It is just one of those topics you have to see in action before the light bulb comes on. In this course, I will explain the 3 level of details expressions in a way you can understand it and show you 11 different examples.

Try it for 14 days and if you don’t think it was worth the money just let me know and I refund you the money, that easy.
Very informative and nice neat chunks with lots of hands-on training. Even for someone who has used Tableau for over 6 years and considers myself to be an expert these have always eluded me...thank you for simplifying them!
I loved it! I never really looked into LODs too much. After taking this course, I can't believe how easy and yet powerful they are. I have been wanting to do these types of calculations for a while.
This is the best value for money training I found online around these key Tableau operators. Learn how and why to lock your aggregation at the desired level in your data hierarchy, both dependently and independently of your view. A follow-along worksheet is included for download. Instructions are delivered clearly and with enthusiasm by the trainer, who throws in a few neat, not-immediately-obvious bonus tricks, including the use of LODs in place of the lookup operator. Recommended. Honestly, even being nit-picky I can't think of anything. And I really tried to.
It was very good; I'm relatively new to Tableau and never realized the powerful things you could do using these LOD Expressions.
The only thing I found was that I needed to slow the playback speed to .75 and still at times when following along I would have to rewind to see exactly what steps to take. I guess my only suggestion would be to take a little more time to walk users through the steps.

I really liked this course. It definitely gives me a better understanding of LODs! I learned some tips not related to LODs. Guess this was a mixed blessing?! I am definitely going to continue my Tableau education with you, Tyler, so thanks!
