Using Tableau 8.1.
Daily data like this:

Date     Sales

1-1-14     $5

1-2-14     $2


6-15-14    $15

Which can be aggregated to weeks of course

Week 1   $15

Week 2   $12

Week 3   $10

Week 4   $13 


I would like to get the weekly average of each month

So like this:

  Weekly Average

Month 1     (weekly average of the weekly total sales)  ($15+$12+$10+13)/4 = 12.5

Month 2 

Month 3  

Does that make sense? If you simply put "average" in the tableau table, it gives the average daily value PER WEEK (or month) < - I don't want that. I want the average of the weekly totals per month.

  • You have to create these calculations

Unique Weeks = COUNTD(DATEPART('week',[Date])) Weekly Average = sum([Sales])/[Unique Weeks]

  • And then, you can simply report Weekly Average x Month (or Quarter or Year, etc.)

(Note: Some weeks have < 7 days).

Further, enroll for an online training course to clear the Tableau Desktop Specialist Certification exam. I would recommend this Tableau Training online by Intellipaat.
