A solution to last week's challenge can be found here!
We are thrilled to present another Challenge from our “Think like a CSE” series, brought to you by our fearless team of Customer Support Engineers. Each month, the Customer Support team will ask Community members to “think like a CSE” to try to resolve a case that was inspired by real-life issues encountered by Alteryx users like you!
This month we present the case of ranking ratings in descending order. Below, we’ve provided the information that was initially available to the Customer Support Engineer who resolved the case. It’s up to you to use this information to put a solution together for yourself.
The Case: A User is trying to create a column of rank for an input dataset. Like the Rank function in SQL, we want to return the rank of each row within the partition of a result set. The rank of a row is one plus the number of ranks that come before the row in question. Please see the images below for an example.
Your Goal: Create a Rank column like the Rank function in SQL.
