Dimension drill-down menu in a report

We note that the drill-down dimension menu in a report that contain more than one measure propose all the dimension of the system and not only the dimensions of the different KPI.

Have plan to fix this issue in the next release ?

Hi Carlos,

We haven’t been ignoring you.

When no measure filters are specified this can be difficult as the dimensional sort displayed can contain any subsection of measures.

If multi-select for measures were used we could mesh the intersection of potential dimension types together. Is this what you are asking?

Is this something others would find helpful as well?

Hi Mike,

We don’t want the intersection, but only the dimensions of at least one KPI can drill.

Example :
Dim in PMF : O - P - R - S -T - G -M
Dim KPI xxx : T - O - P - S
Dim KPI yyy : T - O - G

Report with KPI xxx and yyy
-with the current version of PMF the rapport contains de following menu: O - P - R - S -T - G -M
-the menu that we expect: T - O - P - S – G

There are no plans to implement this functionality at the current time.

You can submit an NFR and we will take it under consideration.
