Sort Metric by Dynamic Dates

Sort Metric by Dynamic Dates

Sort Metric by Dynamic Dates

This issue has been puzzling me for a long time, but I don't know if anyone of you have ever found a workaround on this.

When you have the following on a report: Week, User, and metric-Sales.  The layout of report is "User" at Row level, "Week" and "Sales (metric)" are on Column. Week is on top of Sales. So it looks like
User    Sales

Now I want to sort users by Sales of the most recent week.  Through the advanced sorting, I have to pick a week and can't dynamically set for the most recent week.  So even I sort correctly for one week, when a new week comes up, the date is still sorted for the last week.

Does anyone have a work around?  I will greatly appreciate the help!!!



RE: Sort Metric by Dynamic Dates

Have you tried using the Metric Dimensionality feature. You can set the Grouping to User. This should help you obtain the results.

RE: Sort Metric by Dynamic Dates

Thanks for the reply.  I have not tried the dimensionality because there potentially can be many metris on report and dimensionality can be complicated by then.

However I have opened an issue with MicroStrategy. I will post any progress on this.

Thank you again!
