I learned a lot more than I expected to from this week's challenge. Thanks to @NicoleJohnson and @Victor_Mendes for the lessons on using the Q anchor and @patrick_digan 's explanation of reference shortcuts.

I took the long way using detour tools and multiple filters, but now I have a lot more options!

I tried the detour tool several years back when I was just learning alteryx and I was having trouble getting it to work. It looks so simple, but after that experience I gave up on the tool and have refused to go back and try it. Everyone makes it look so easy (as I'm sure it is), but I guess I just can't give up that grudge
