You have to admire @NicoleJohnson and @T_Willins.  Striking out on their own.  Blazing a new trail.  Not following instructions:)

Unlike those rebels above, I followed the hint and used the Make Group tool.  What a clever little thing it is.

@danilang - This is the second time in a month I've realized (far too late) that the Make Groups tool could have been extremely efficient & useful. Underappreciated Alteryx tools for the win!! Well done reading the instructions - I should probably try that sometime haha.

I'll challenge you on the not following instructions part.  The hint was "You will make 5 groups", not "use the Make Groups tool".  I'm not going to feel too bad if I solution like @NicoleJohnson as I was inspired to start working through the weekly challenges by watching her win the 2018 Grand Prix.

Reliving this question, I wish I would have tried to not use the Make Group tool (one I have never used before and was trying to learn on the spot) and think about the other spatial tools like I did here similar to @NicoleJohnson 

 

I am definitely learning a lot from the Make Group solutions!

Make groups is a complex tool.
