2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update
The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs.
If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.
A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.
A bookstore owner would like to analyze why some books were unavailable.
The Dataset reflects the daily slip records of the book available by title, date, and reason why they are or aren’t available. Note that the column “Availability” provides the number of books available for the given date.
For this challenge, help the store owner find out how many consecutive days a book was unavailable and the reason(s) why.
Hints • Start by flagging the day a book is unavailable • Group by consecutive days of availability by book so you can filter the unavailable books • Pick the first and last day of unavailability and count the number of consecutive days unavailable and the reasons • Pull the first and last date of availability
Same result, but organized a bit differently. Grouped by Title and sorted by Start Date in chronological (not dictionary) order. Also listed reasons in order from first to last day instead of last to first day.
