Extensions work with providing data through a worksheet, we call this a datasheet. Because SuperTables is incredibly flexible for end-users you want to give them the freedom to explore as much data as possible. The downside of adding too much detail to your datasheet is a decrease in performance . When not showing the lowest detail in your SuperTables it will give you duplicated rows. This can be solved by using the grouping bar but solving this with Dynamic Aggregations is an even better solution!
We combine the power of Tableau Parameters and visible columns in SuperTables. By doing this we will automatically remove / add detail from the datasheet which results in a different level of aggregation. With this incredible feature you only query the data you are looking at, and Table Calculations / LOD calculations will also keep working like you expect! On top of that you benefit from a performance boost!
We worked hard on our calculation engine and are proud to introduce Count Distinct calculations for dimensions! This incredible new feature lets you calculate the unique amount of members in a dimension and show this in your SuperTables. You can use this in calculations to add even more value to your table.
We love to make solutions and help Tableau users to do things more efficiently. If you have feedback, ideas, questions or need support, please share them with us! Also, don’t forget to follow us on social media for our latest news and updates.
