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 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!

This was great Tyler - thank you! Sorry I peppered you with questions while I was going through it. I re-listened to several parts, especially when you were introducing the paletton tool and that got me going.

It was an excellent course. I was having difficulty understanding LOD via another Udemy course. Your course helped clarify things.

It was very good; I'm relatively new to Tableau and never realized the powerful things you could do using these LOD Expressions.

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 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.
