I'm new to *Mathematica*, and while this is potentially quite easy, I'm having difficulty using `TimeObject`

s in the `EventSeries`

function.
After pulling out a column from an original dataset which had a series of time values, I then applied `Count`

as `Count @ Original`

which gave me a table akin to:

```
Dataset[<|
DateObject[{2016, 1, 1}, TimeObject[{12, 00, 0.}, TimeZone -> 10.],
TimeZone -> 10.] -> 26,
DateObject[{2016, 1, 1}, TimeObject[{01, 00, 0.}, TimeZone -> 10.],
TimeZone -> 10.] -> 364,
DateObject[{2016, 1, 1}, TimeObject[{02, 00, 0.}, TimeZone -> 10.],
TimeZone -> 10.] -> 16|>]
```

My question is 2-fold.

1) How do I pass that dataset to the `EventSeries`

function, to be able to do a `TimeSeries`

-esque plot? I'm finding it particularly difficult to find anything that references passing `TimeObject`

s, hence the question.

2) Given that I am new to *Mathematica*, my second question is more conceptually, about the easiest way to pass multiple lists (or as I would previously call them, columns of a `Dataset`

) to a function?

1The number of ways to apply functions to arbitrary components of a dataset (columns or otherwise) is endless. It might make sense to ask separate, more focused, questions on this topic (or review some of the other questions under the [tag:dataset] or [tag:query] tags). – WReach – 2016-07-24T18:23:28.633

Thanks. I appreciate that there are a seemingly endless way to apply functions, but I was looking for something a little more general that I can try to apply to each problem before I run into trouble.The extra detail about how to use functions to work with the new dataset was super helpful. – infinityplusb – 2016-07-25T08:33:58.907
