⦿ Using a Custom (or Retail) Calendar in Tableau

The Cognetik Cloud Connector gives you the power to use a Custom calendar or Retail calendar inside Tableau. 

This comes in handy when pulling data from your favorite data connector at a weekly or monthly granularity, because data would already be correctly aggregated at these levels, with the Cognetik Cloud Connector doing all the heavy lifting. 

Here are the available Calendar options:

Standard - Uses Gregorian calendar (The first day of the week is Sunday, and months are determined by the calendar dates)

Retail - Uses the National Retail Federation calendar (The first day of the week is Sunday, but the months are defined by the 4-5-4 NRF calendar https://nrf.com/resources/4-5-4-calendar )

Custom - Select the day the week starts (Very useful if the first day of the week is not Sunday, this option allows the user to define custom start days for weeks) Custom_Cal_2.png
