Recently, I was faced with a very interesting problem. I had developed a complex dataset. Beside that there are more than 200 reports using a live connection to this dataset. A report’s user had come and asked for negating a Boolean value of a column – because I had misunderstood the meaning of the column. To fix the bug in the dataset is a simple task. But how to find all the reports which are using this column in a visual, a measure, or a filter? I must fix all of them, too. How to identify all those reports? That is my topic today.
Whenever we have geography data, the first thing we want to have is a map visual. In sales data, we can have different brands or categories topping the state, based on different measures. We will try to color the map based on topper/winner, same as what we see in the election with the winner part color on a state.
