Work with filters in Performance Manager

When working with lots of data, it is always wise to initially add important filters. There are several ways to handle filters. You can use the basic filter selections or set you own advanced filter.

You can use any of these options.

  • Report filter component to set filters to be used on all sheets in the entire report or just used for selected parts.
  • Filters in the Filter area at the top of each pivot table or other component.
  • Filter on any added dimension in rows or columns.

A user wants to create a report with many sheets. They want to always focus on the months of the past year, only view data from the Default scenario and only view the intervals between 08:00-20:00 even if there are data outside of these intervals.

  • In the report filter component:

    • Add a Year dimension and set it.
    • Add a Scenario dimension.
    • Define on what level to use the filter: the current sheet, the entire report, or selected parts.
  • In the pivot table filter area, at the top of a pivot table, add a dimension as the filter.
  • Add Month, Date, and Intervals as row dimensions in the pivot table. Set at filter on the interval row and define what intervals to show.

The user can now focus on the values for the months and dates from the past year, but also drill down from a month to a date, and to a specific interval.
