Lumira Practice: Custom Calculations using Date Math and Aggregations
In this “how-to” I am creating a “days to ship” calculation with the following steps:
1) use a “datediff” calculation to calculate the difference between shipping date and order date
2) change the aggregation to from sum to average
3) create a visualization by country
4) for interactivity, create a storyboard
5) share to Lumira Cloud
First I create a calculated dimension as the dates are “dimensions” in the dataset.
Here is the calculation:
I have to convert it to a measure.
Then I change the aggregation from sum to average:
Here is the visualization of average by country:
Then the storyboard – I include controls for interactivity by continent:
Then share to Lumira Cloud:
Then I logon to Lumira cloud at cloud.saplumira.com to interact with the storyboard:
Lastly, I can “explore” the dataset, taking a look at the “Did you know” area:
You can see more of Lumira at BI 2014 next month in Orlando (snow-free).
