Virtual Table Where?

Hello EDNA,

I’m a member and I have trouble with is finding the video for what I need in the learning center. There is no search function or a table of contents or index would be great. In fact it’s easier for me to go on YouTube. But I payed big $$$ to have great content but it’s impossible to find what I need easily.

Example, right now, I want to try and use Virtual Table to combine data into one place with all the information and calculations in one place. That would maybe solve a problem that I have at the moment. But how do I find all the great Virtual Tables video that I know is here ?

Not easy finding what you need and I don’t want to look everywhere to maybe find the video I’m looking for. This then becomes not a great experience when your looking for something specific…

@ericet,

There actually is a phenomenal search capability of the Learning Center resources – it just counterintuitively is located within the forum, due to some limitations of the platform infrastructure. Every single eDNA video is indexed through this search capability, including those originally posted on YouTube. Here’s how to use it:

Two other things to keep in mind in searching for virtual table information:

If you know which virtual table functions specifically you want to search for, the Enterprise DNA knowledgebase is another fantastic resource::

Finally, @Melissa and I use a convention in our DAX solutions , where when we use virtual table variables we name them “vTable”. Thus if you search for forum posts using that term, plus any others you want to combine with that term, it should return a lot of useful content about virtual tables.

I hope that’s helpful.

Hi @ericet, did the response provided by @BrianJ help you solve your query? If not, how far did you get and what kind of help you need further? If yes, kindly mark as solution the answer that solved your query. Thanks!

Actually no, I’m looking for all the EntetrpriseDNA virtual table videos. The search gives me a bunch of things but not what I want. Restricting the search to only you education section would be nice or an index of all the videos in the educational area would be even better.

@ericet,

Clicking on the Learning Center option should restrict your search to the education section of the portal.

I’ve created a short gif below demonstrating how to restrict your search to only the eDNA video entries, and not the general library of all related forum posts.

Hi @ericet, we’ve noticed that no response has been received from you since the 6th of April. We just want to check if you still need further help with this post? In case there won’t be any activity on it in the next few days, we’ll be tagging this post as Solved.

Brian,

Sorry, very busy these days but your GIF is so low quality that I can’t see anything. Maybe you could make a little video in the help section ? I’m sure other people have the same problem and it would be helpful to everyone.

And no, I could not search only in the education section. :frowning:

Looking forward to solving this and helping me with other searches in the future.

@ericet,

Okay, hopefully third times a charm here. I created the attached one minute video demonstrating what I think is the best way to search for specific portal content, such as videos on virtual tables.

I hope this gets you what you need.

Thanks again and put this video so that people can find it easily.
