Hi Maveryx,

 

Thanks for submitting your solutions for our first official Cloud Quest! In the video solution we posted, Alteryx Chief Evangelist, Joshua Burkhow (@joshuaburkhow) will guide you through the workflow (scroll down the page to locate the video).

Thank you, Josh, for the exceptional guidance!

 

For this week’s quest, you are taking on the role of a restaurant manager. You want to review customer purchase behavior to decide whether your restaurant should offer a meal deal that would add a side and drink to a pizza or burger purchase. To make this decision, you need to study recent transactions to determine the potential impact it could have.

 

The Point of Sale dataset includes the ticket-level information, and the two lookup tables categorize items into higher-level food types.

 

Your task is to determine the percentage of orders since July 1, 2013, that include the Food category (Pizza or Burger) paired with a Side AND Drink. To accomplish this, you need to determine the total number of orders placed within the specified timeframe and identify those that meet the criteria for the potential meal deal you are considering for your menu.

 

Hint 1: Remember to combine the dataset with the lookup tables and filter by date.

Hint 2: Remember to account for dates after June 30, 2013 to include July 1, 2013 in the output.

 

Your final result should look like the following image:

Hint: A combination of Join, Filter, Summarize, Cross Tab, Append Columns, and Summarize tools should solve your problem, not necessarily in this sequence.

 

If you find yourself struggling with any of the tasks, feel free to explore these interactive lessons in Maveryx Academy for guidance:

Solved during the AU-Syd weekly challenge hour!

This one was surprisingly a tricky one, especially with restructuring/counting the data to account for meals.

Satisfying to build using the new interface. Love the cross tab function to only show specific columns, it removes the pain of having to have a select just afterward!

This is how I solved it. The rounding threw me off a bit, but I figured it out.

Not sure why we have this [Other] category all of a sudden... It does not fit the criterium, does it?

 

Here's my take
