A playlist in progress: I'm working my way through the key functions used in Tableau. As the videos are produced this playlist will update.

The window modifier is used commonly in Tableau to calculate totals, moving averages and sums and a range of other use cases. In this video, I walk through how windows work in Tableau in this first part of the explainer.
