Workout Wednesday: Candy Button Small Multiples

No comments
Rody brought back a classic technique for Workout Wednesday week 11. Get all of the requirements here. Almost exactly two years ago, he wrote a guest post on this blog about how to create the unit charts he's challenging everyone to make.

One thing he mentioned in the blog is that now you can use unicode characters in 10.5, however, I've been using them for a long time. I got to this site, find the character I want to use, and paste it into the calculation or field name.

The trickiest part for me on this challenge was getting the dots in the right place, that is, starting at the bottom right. I had to swap some of the logic of the calcs around and it was done. As for the headers above each set of dots, well, I'll leave that to you to figure out. Here's my tip: don't overcomplicate it; it's quite simple.

Again, find all of Rody's requirements here. Click the image below for the interactive version.
