Analysis Designer Report is Summarized by Default Time Level
For some reason our Analysis Designer report (in Analysis Tab) keeps displaying measures by month accross the time dimesion instead of by quarter although the "Sort Across" box clearly specified "quarter".

The report would summarize and display (measures) by quarter only when the "Default Time Level" setting of "Summarization" (under System Settings in "Manage" tab) is set to quarter.

I was told that "sorting across" parameter in the report should override the PMF default time level settings (in Summarization) but apparently it does not.

Is this how the system is designed or is there incorrect set up somewhere?

Does anyone know how to make the report ignore the default time level setting and go with what selected for the report in the Analysis tab?

Thank you.

What version/HF level of PMF do you have? Which template are you using in Analysis Designer? Testing this in general, we're seeing the dimension sort and level applied properly.

You might want to take a problem like this to customer support rather than to the Forum.
