We are looking to filter the line items shown on the dashboard as per each version that is selected by the user. We have built a model for P&L Target Setting wherein different stages of the process are included as versions. There are different line items which are relevant for the various versions according to the process stage we are on. So, what is happening currently is we are having to build different sets of dashboards for all these different versions.
I was wondering whether there was a way to filter the line items displayed on the dashboard according to the each selected version.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can easily achieve this with a Line Item Subset (assuming all of the metrics are numeric)
1. Let's assume I have the follolwing module, dimensioned by Customer and Version, with four line items: Sales, Volume, Expenses and Costs
2. Create a line item subset from that module and include all applicable line items (Note the Best Practice naming convention (Module:Line Item Subset Description)
3. Create a module dimensioned by Version and the Line Item Subset, with a single Boolean line item and check the appropriate combinations
4. In the target module, set the filter to the line item from above
If your P&L Module had the metrics in a list rather than line items, you can skip step 2.
I hope this helps
Thanks @DavidSmith for such a detailed explanation. This really helped us!
You can only choose Number formatted line items in a Line Item subset. So this solution does not work for text-formatted line items.
The only way is to have the text line items in another grid (below or to the side), that is shown all of the time regardless of the filtering
