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.
- LOD Overview
- Filter Hierarchy
- Exclude Overview
- Exclude – Percent of Total
- Exclude – Profit by State
- Exclude – COGS Difference
- Include Overview
- Include – Sum of Sales by Date
- Include – Sales per Office and Day
- Include – Max Sale
- Fixed Overview
- Fixed – Gross Margin %
- Fixed – Acquisition Date
- Fixed – Full Week Filter
- Fixed – Rolling 60 Days Filter
- Fixed – Buying Freq
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.
I really enjoyed the LOD course
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 enjoyed it! The modules were short and straightforward, making them easy to watch multiple times. Tyler did a great job explaining each item he covered, which was nice since there are many nuances that seem simple, but a newbie simply doesn't know! Thanks for delivering the material at a high level! The content was clear and user friendly - I enjoyed what I learned, and would recommend to a friend!
It was an excellent course. I was having difficulty understanding LOD via another Udemy course. Your course helped clarify things.
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.

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!
I'm already using LOD's in Tableau and seen presentations by Zen Masters on the topic but thought I'd check this out. I have to say I was really impressed! The format, delivery, content and resource are excellent. It's concise, clear and to the point which I love. No more grey areas in my understanding! I'll definitely be checking out more of your courses - thanks! Difficult to find fault really, I was very happy with it. If anything, perhaps there could be more viz examples of LOD's in use, e.g. non-tabular, for idea generation?
It was very good; I'm relatively new to Tableau and never realized the powerful things you could do using these LOD Expressions.
I like the Include, Exclude and the Fixed a lot. I actually don't know which I like most yet because I finished the whole module. All of the 3 types of Level of Detail are phenomenal. Thank you so much. I am absolutely blown away by your mastery of Tableau and I am willing to be your student so that you help me grow to at least 70% to 80% of your mastery. Again thank you a lot from the bottom of my heart.
Yes, very good course, easy to follow and well explained with lots of examples
