Hello, I need your help on one metric. Some information :TL_RBRA : Transaction list with all orders. “Order_id” is the primary key. There is a column “Brand_id”TL_Brand_Type : Transaction list with all Brands. “Brand_id” is the primary key. There is a column “Brand_Type”Gms_eur_without_vat = Gross Merchandise Value In the transaction list “TL_RBRA”, I have two dimensions :“Month” with the colum “ts_checkout_payment_confirmed” “Country” with the “retailer_country”I want to make this metric : TL_RBRA.gms_eur_without_vat [by : TL_RBRA.ts_checkout_payment_confirmed.Month , TL_RBRA.retailer_country]I want to add the dimension “Brand Type” in this metric but it is in the transaction list “TL_Brand_Type”.I have a dimension “Brand_id” to make the link between these two transactions list. I don’t want to make a “Vlookup” to add “Brand Type” in “TL_RBRA” but make it directly in the metric. Do you have the solution ? Thanks a lot for your help.
Hi, good afternoon everyone!I have an error and I can't solve it, could you help me with the solution, please?I have the formula: 'Bonus per year (euros)'[BY CONSTANT: Month.Year][FILTER: Month.'Monthof Year'='Month of Year'."December"]I got error return: " Error: Unknown List Property: Month.'Monthof Year' "But when I go to check the Month dimension, I see the list.Can you help me please?Thanks!
Hi, I want to create a formula using IF, similar to that: if(Month.'End Date'>'Switchover date','metric XX'), but I have 2 conditions:Month.'End Date'>'Switchover date’, and If it is 2022 it has to get data from metric A and if it is from 2023 onwards it has to get data from metric BHow can I do that?
Is there a way when different modelers upload data in the same transaction list, to have a dimension that maps the user who uploaded the specific lines? To be able to filter & make changes only to data related to 1 user. Or should this be something included in the import files ?
Hi, I remember discussions on spreadsheet mode within Pigment that was going to be released, that a native excel user can get an excel like view within the tool? But I can’t see this in the Product Roadmap?Is this still in the pipeline?Thanks!Mihraspcc @Mohamad Mookhith @Catherine Overo
Hello team,I have created a text metric, which I would like to use as an explanations column next to our variances for actuals vs forecast and forecast vs budget. I tried to add it in the relevant table that I have (which brings all lines of our cashflow statement and all the amounts per month and per version, meaning forecast, budget, and actual). So far anything I tried did not seem to work, as usually it says the following: “Expressions are incompatible and cannot all be converted to Number”. I would really appreciate if you could share any idea on how I could do that 😊 Thanks a lot in advance!
Is is possible to synchronize Chart with Grid/ Table in the board ?suppose, if I want this Bar chart to show “Previous Year Vs.

How do I construct my Actual with scenario feature? The source of my actual is a transaction list and when I was using versions I used the formula below: costs_data.'R$'[BY SUM : costs_data.'Datahub month', costs_data.'N3 - imports'.N3, costs_data.'Cost center', costs_data.'P&L row Datahub'][BY: Version."Actual"] +-1*'Cost center expenses'.'R$'[BY SUM : 'Cost center expenses'.Mês, 'Cost center expenses'.'N3 - imports'.N3, 'Cost center expenses'.'Cost center', 'Cost center expenses'.'P&L Row'][BY: Version."Budget"]+'Expenses budget input'[BY SUM: Account.N3, Account.'P&L Rows'][BY: Version."Budget"][remove:Vendors] But with scenarios I’m a little confused on how to make that.
Hello! We have our reporting per city & city dimension has region as a property. When I am trying to create a report to show margins for example for our group I want to start with the group margin, then the region and then the city. However, the formula which is on a city level doesn’t seem to work for the margin percentages for the region & group. It works only if I create different metrics with different formula on the different level dimension but then my report can’t have the sequence I want. Is there any solution here? Is there a way to fix this with ADD?
Hi Pigment team, I’m trying to add empty rows into my Table block, so that I can separate some categories of expenses from each other: I tried to create and add empty “Placeholder” Metric, however it requires a name and I can’t simply leave it empty. Is there another way to add such empty rows between items? Best,Dastan
I would like to include a transaction list in a Board. The Board has several other metrics and tables. The Access Rights functionality is working fine for metrics and tables (a user can only see numbers related to their department). However, it isn’t working on the transaction list. The transaction list has Department as one of the dimension. Am I doing something that is causing this error or access rights just do not work on transaction lists?
I am modeling our people expenses but I will need that for other modeling. I want to prepare it by version (budget, forecast 1, forecast 2, etc) and I want to let it easier to switch between versions as we need.For that, I am creating thoose metrics:Metric 1: Headcount Starting Point: that is the number of headcount we have just before starting planning the budget or forecast: (configured by: Version, month, cost center and seniority)Metric 2: Headcount addition: that will be where we will input the number of new headcount we are planning to have (configured by: Version, month, cost center and seniority)Metric 3: Total Headcount: Is the sum of metrics 1 and 2 that gives me the final number of headcount (configured by: Version, month, cost center and seniority)My question is: How can I make sure that metric 3 only picks up data for the appropriate version? And also, how can I change the version it picks up accordingly with our planning time? For example: In November 22 we are going to
How can I filter ‘Amount’ column, which is a number formatted column, so that it takes only negative numbers?GL.Amount[by sum:GL.Month,GL.Account, GL.'Department Pigment'][Filter : Account.'Account Code'="11010"]In the above formula, I am summing up transaction amounts from “GL” Transaction List by Month, Account, and Department (which are all dimensions). However, I also want Pigment to take only negative amounts. I tried to paste [GL.Amount < 0] within the filter, but it keeps telling me that the system cannot do that, as GL.Amount is not a dimension but number.
Changing the dimension of a metric in Pigment erases the input value within it. If your metric only has a formula and no metric override enabled, the changes are reversible though.Here’s what you can do to make sure you keep all your input data is safe and not erased. Before changing structure in multiple metrics, I highly recommend you take a snapshot of your application and the dependent ones to identify any data misalignment with no hassle. Deciding on how you want to keep your data If you want to add dimensions to your metric, the rule is probably an aggregation. For example, if you go from a metric with just months to a metric with months and countries, the data in months will aggregate across all countries.If you go the other way around and remove a dimension, so going from a metric with both Month and Country to just Month, you have to decide on a rule for the allocation. There are simple rules you can go with.If everything should go in a specific item you can go with 'Source Me
Hi! I have a metric called “launch dates” with different project names. Project | Launch DateOne 7/1/2022Two 7/15/2022Three 8/1/2022Four 12/10/2022 From this metric (all the values are *date* type), I want to pull the latest date (in this case, 12/10/2022) into a new metric (LatestLaunchDate) to use it in a calculation. A simplified version of what I’m thinking would be:=IF(Month.Year > LatestLaunchDate, 1, 0) For any month prior to and including the month with the LatestLaunchDate, one calculation would apply. For any month after the LatestLaunchDate, a different calculation would apply. I tried a few versions of the MAX and BY MAX modifiers/functions but didn’t get the result I wanted.
Hello! I would like to calculate a movingsum formula where the starting month is always fixed (eg Jun 18) but the last month is always the current month. So for Mar 22 I would like the cumulative sum from Jun 18 to Mar 22 but for Apr 22 I would like the sum from Jun 18 to Apr 22. How can I do this?
Wondering if anyone has encountered some of the same issues I have after duplicating an application and found ways to resolve them.1. The duplication process has been complete for over a day and I still see [PARTIAL] on the new application. Is this something to be worried about? After duplication my new application has an error related to the User Roles metric which has limited details on how I might fix the problem. Not entirely sure why this error would appear since the application is an exact copy of an existing application where everything works. New ApplicationOld Application
