Hello community,

 

I’m creating a transaction list to be inputted manually by an end user.

How can I have a reduce list for a certain dimension?

eg: in a country dimension with all countries, the list available needs to be only the European countries.

 

As a workaround I’m creating extra lists to have these sub-lists. But it will not be a very clean strategy in the end.

 

Does anyone have another way to overcome this?

Thank you

Sofia

Hi Sofia,

This is something our product team is currently looking into. I don’t have an exact ETA yet, but likely early next year. Hope that helps.

Hello Sofia,

Using sub-set is definitely the way to go as of now. Don’t forget to add a property to each of your sub-set that is mapping back to the original dimension. Something that will look like this:
 

 

Then when you are using a metric with the sub-set as a dimension you can map back to your original dimension using:

BY: Sub-set.’Original Dimension’]
 

Another option to reduce the values displayed in a drop-list is to use an Access Rights rule that you would apply directly on the dimension list to reduce the list of items that a specific user can display. However this method will be applied everywhere in your Workspace and not only in a specific metric or transaction list which might not be the result expected.

Hope this helps

@Sofia Costa   Just want to follow up on this, we did recently release dependent dropdowns for transactions lists.
