Hi Maveryx,

 

Thanks for submitting your solutions for Cloud Quest #2! In the video solution we posted, Alteryx Chief Evangelist Josh Burkhow will guide you through the workflow.

 

Now, for this week’s quest, let's delve into the task of ranking records when there can be multiple records with the same rank.

 

Using the provided dataset that contains two columns [Name] and [Count], your goal is to identify the top five rankings based on the count. However, as there might be several rows with identical counts (similar to a round of golf), multiple individuals can occupy the same position (Rank) if they share the same score.

 

Your final result should look like the following image:

Hint: Identify the top five positions (ranks 1 through 5) based on the Count column before proceeding with your analysis.

A combination of Join, Summarize, Sample, Row ID, and Sort 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:

 

Here’s to a successful quest!

Using my own datasource (which I had to deduplicate because it was hastily generated) I tackled this Quest #3!

Here's my take

the second aggregation step is to create te count per user, but as the tile tool inverses the rankings, I had to fix that using a max_tile + append + formula constructionthe second aggregation step is to create te count per user, but as the tile tool inverses the rankings, I had to fix that using a max_tile + append + formula construction

My solution!!

 

I remember there was the similar challenge in Weekly Challenge. So I used Weekly Challenge #9's input file.

Similar solution as well - is it just me or did the Tile tool not perform as expected?

Big thanks to @AkimasaKajitani for the example file! Here's a solution that uses Unique instead of Summarize:
