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. The Cognetik Cloud Connector does all the heavy lifting.

Here are the available Calendar options:


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

2. 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 ).

3. 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).
