Dears, I tried to use the formula IN and it seems to not be available anymoreIN function | Community (gopigment.com) I just want to add a boolean formula in a trasancation to get back true when I have a dimension in another column = “ XXX” Thank you very much in advance BR ,Jose
Dears, I have the following formula: With the following metrics: and the following structure :The main di,mension client has mapped a segment as a property and I want to do the calculations by that property (Segment). My two metrics are also in terms of the property; and I want to calculate the the value that I have in MRR BE by Customer for each month divided by the Total Users by each month.If I go to drill down, I have the following information: Le calcule de MRR BE by Customer and Type is correct as well as the Total Users, but the Final calculation it seems to sum everything again instead of just dividing the two calculations. Thank you very much in advance for your guidance,BRJose
Hello,We have an issue with data modeling and security for one of our boards in our people application.This board concerns new positions belonging to one team, company, department and recruiting manager. All of our metrics are dimensioned by Company x Departement x Teams as when we created the metrics, there was only one manager for each combination. However, the org has changed and there can now be several recruiting managers in one team with no hierarchy relationship. Due to confidentiality reasons a manager cannot see open position details of other managers' even if they belong to the same team.None of our metrics are dimensioned by employee. So how can we add security based on managers without changing all of our metrics and adding the employee dimension (we have done manual inputs on the metrics so it would erase everything)? (We have already logged in a ticket but if someone has an idea in the meantime it would be very helpful :) )Thanks!@ClementineEv
In a table, the row headings (the pivoted fields that you can view either in Tabular or Tree layout) are by default formatted with dark grey font on a light grey background. But if I want it to make it *pop* I can’t think of other way than to go row-by-row and go through the menu:Is there a better way?
Hi community,HR team asked us an interesting modelling questionThey want to know the employee average age within the company. As TODAY() function doesn’t exist yet in Pigment, the only option I found so far is to :1/ Create a metric with today’s day that will need to be updated when required2/ Allocate a date of birth to each employee in a transaction list or similarQuestion : How to write the right formula to get an age (like 36 for 36 yo) result per employee per month taking in consideration the employee base changes over the years, and then be able to determine an average ?Thank you for your help,Erwan
Been having an issue where when in Grid view for my most recent month some of my data is falling under a Blank category for 2 dimensions even though none of the underlying data has Blank values. When drilling down to the transaction there are no blanks and the data is correct in the grid view. I’ve cleared my cache and realaunched chrome but still have the issue persist even after reloading the original transaction list.Please see images below
When I upload info in a table, and the upload is giving me e.g. 2 new items in that table, do I have a detail of those 2 new items anywhere? To know exactly what I have as new.I know when I upload and some items are not being populated for any reason, I can see in the “i” of information button the specific cases, but with the “new items” I don’t see that button with the specific items which are being added.If there exists an option to see, could you please tell me?If not, could we have it?
Hi, I plan for benefits at an annual level using a metric called “Benefits as % of salary” with dimensions year, subsidiary, and version. As an example, for FY22 I have manually entered 5% as my assumption. What is the best way to then convert the annual assumption 5% to a monthly metric? As in I want to show the actual benefits as % of Salary by month and then show 5% going forward when the version switches to forecast. My annual forecast may also change by year, so I cannot use [remove lastnonblank: year]
hello :) I want to apply a filter on a metric, it tells me that it can be converted to dimension and i do not undertand why. This is the initial metric: And i want to apply this filter: [FILTER:'Job Id'.Contrat = Contract.'Included in People Costs']→ in order to compute costs only for contracts that are included in people costs
I would like to adapt in Pigment a simple formula used in excel (Metric 1 in yellow, with details in cell F2) :NB : The grey cell C2 is a manual input initiating the sequence.Issue: as the calculation is like a sequence using each previous value, there would be iterations within the same metric.I’ve tried the below formula to overcome the issue, it works for few months but you can see it’s not scalable:
Hello! I have a dimension in “Environment prod-2022” which is “id_order” → I put on the right the brand name and the retailer name, which are text type data from a transaction list (TL_RBRA).Then, i created a table “Top Retailers / Brands”, in which i aggregate my date by Id_order dimension, i want to create a view in which i display the brand name next to the id_order and another view in which in display the retailer name next to the id_order. Retailer_name and Brand_name are both properties of Order_Id but are not dimension but text type, then i do not achieve to pit in the pivot brand_name and retailer_name next to the order_id. At the end, i want the 2 views in a board.How can i do it? Thanks a lot!

I was looking into a ticket with a colleague and found a use case where a customer was using a Metric to track if an employee is ramped or ramping.The configuration is a simple metric, dimensioned by Employee and Month with a datatype of a Dimension (Used to flag whether an employee is ramping or ramped)Dimension Flag MetricDimension Flag Metric ConfigurationThis works perfectly when bucketing sales into either being made during the Ramping/Ramped phase to help with forecasting. However, if you want to account for quarters you end up with values in Ramping and Ramped. To account for this I assigned a value to each dimension Then I aggregated the values in a Metric dimensioned by Quarter instead of Month I was then able to create a similar metric to before, but this time, if any month in the quarter contained ‘Ramping’ the whole month, would display as ‘Ramping’
Dears,I created a new metric in which I subtract two metrics that have the same dimensions. Since the metrics are coming from different transaction lists that share the same dimension (customer email) , one frome Resquests MRR BE and the other from BillsMonths I dont share the same customer email in both metrics, and I want to perform the substraction of only those emails that are in both transactions. I tried using filters with ISDEFINED for the email in each transaction to see if the metric will only give the emails that are shared in both transactions but I couldn’t do the right formula. If would be very helpful if you can point me in the right direction?Thank you very much in advance! Jose
Hello Community members! Asking a modeling question to the Community? Here are 3 tips to help you get the best possible answers from your peers. Give context around what you are trying to achieve and the different solutions you’ve come up with so far. This will help us understand your thought process and how you’ve come there, but most importantly help us write an explanation that makes sense in your case. When describing the blocks used in your example, make sure to identify each block’s type (Dimension, Transaction list, Metric, or Table). Additionally, make sure your block names are understandable by everyone (if they use a special naming convention in your application - please explain what they are). Explain the data type and dimensions of the blocks you list. This helps people understand the types of data you are working with. If you’re using a transaction list, explain the property types. For example: TX_Actuals: transaction list, properties: order (data type= Order) Amount

Hi team!I would like some help, as I cannot find out what is going wrong.I have a metric that we add adjustments on top of our initial forecast and along with other metrics they all end up in a table. My problem is that for one specific line the number is not correct, in fact, i drill down to see where this number comes from but the amounts that I see (the correct ones) don’t give the amount shown in the table! So I am trying to understand what else is pulling but not showing so as to fix it! Any idea what could it be?
Dears, I have a dimension “Self Served” that I get from an extract directly intro a transaction list A, in this transaction list A I have another dimension “Client ID” that is shared with another transaction list B, and I added another column in transaction list B to get the dimension “Self Served” but I get an error, is there a way to connect both transaction lists with something similar to a vlook up in Excel? I dont want to keep importing or manually adding “Self Served” into the dimension “Client ID” so I can use the function ITEM. I am trying to automate the data so it comes directly from the extracts. Thank you very much for your insights! BR,Jose
