What is the easiest way to check connectivity between Models
If you create 3 Models, what is the easiest way to check which Dimensions, Metrics from one Model are used in another?Case: a copy has been made of a working Model and updated. Too many updates have been made and we want to make the copied Model the new Model, but we need to check which Blocks to reconnect. What is the best way to do that? Dependency Diagram in combination with Settings > Libraries? Or is there a quicker way?
Modify a calculated item directly from the dashboard
Hello Pigment community, I am trying to compute a table showing in a column the YTD revenue, but the YTD can not be fixed on a specific month but be variable (if we want to see the YTD for 2 months ago for example). The only way i saw how to do a YTD revenue is to use a “cumulate” in the calculated items, when i add a calculated item on the dimension “month”. But if i want to change my month from the “current month” to another month, like two months ago, i will have to go back to the calculated item in the pivot. Is there a way to change the “item” in “calculated item” easily directly from the pages of the table, so that we can change it directly from the dashboards ? Or if this does not work like that, is there a way for me to be able to get a YTD computation that can be edited directly from a dashboard ? Thanks a lot for your help !
Hi!Can someone please help me to find the vendor names from the description of a transaction from a list of vendor list that I already have?Right now, with the help of ITEM function its able to only recognize if the description has only the full vendor name from the list. But I want to populate vendor names by finding the vendor names in the description among other extra texts as well.For example,if my Description is “Amazon.com” ITEM function is able to recognize the vendor name and populate Amazon.com from the list that I have as a dimension. if the description is “Orders from Amazon.com”, its not able to find “Amazon.com” among the other texts in the description.So I’m looking for a way to find these vendor names from the description which has other text apart from the vendor name and populate it.Thank you!
Pushing Data from Gsheet to Pigment
Hi here,The possibility to Push Data from Gsheet to Pigment is very useful, thanks.However, when pushing the informations, it seems that the line are being added to the previous lines and not replacing them.For example, if someone is reviewing his budget in Gsheet and we want to push the information in Pigment, new figures will be added the previous pushed figures.Is there a way to “update” the Named_Range and not adding it? Thanks

Filtering different elements of a dimension in the same metric
Hi everybody. I’ve come across a task to post one metric to a dashboard in the form of several graphs each of which will show the only element of a dimension. Let’s say we have different networks: 2g, 3g, 4g in a single metric. I need three graphs to show traffic per network type: The first one should be 2g traffic, another one - 3g, the last one - 4g.They should not be synchronized by this dimension (‘Technology’ dimension on the graph). How to properly do it? Thank you.

Growth of Negative Items and Conditional Formatting
I’m having issues properly showing the growth and variance of negative items.As an example, if actual EBITDA was -0.25 and budget was -1.0, I can get the difference to display correctly, but my only options for % variance are-75% (-.25- -1.0)/-1 or +300% (-1- -.25)/-.25Neither of those are correct. It should be +75%. I can use “Reverse Signs” but that doesnt apply to conditional formatting. Has anyone figured out a better way to show this in a table?
Hi Team, As we know pigment is all about visuallization, how interesting and convenient we can make board for the end user and visually appealing . On community we have article on Board Inspiration also where we get tips on board preparation but it would be more helpful if we could have some pictorial representation of how we can make our board more eye catching and sensible for end user at the same time. It would be preferred if we could have some sample images of recommended board. Or is there any article on the same which i may have missed than kindly help me locate that. Thank you in advance
FX Conversion Challenge
Hi Pigment Folks, I have the following FX conversion rate challenge,ContextI build my Balance Sheet from staging transaction amounts in local currency from Transactions list and structuring the amounts over a hierarchy were account number is the lower level.My problem comes when trying to convert the amounts to our reporting currency. - I have a metric where I input the conversion rates on a monthly basis. - The balance sheet has the following behaviour: Every month, the cumulative amounts should be converting to the latest rates. And every year should be converting to the last month of the year rates.ChallengeI’m looking to create an FX metric that I can apply to the staged amounts that it’s flexible.I mean that whenever I’m showing data by years, quarters and months select the right rates.For years would multiply the staged cumulative amounts by last month of the year rateFor month would multiply the staged cumulative amounts by each month ratesFor quarters would multiply the staged
