We are trying to leverage the calculated fields through the user interface and would like to get a list of formats, optional calculations, formula’s etc. While simple calculated fields are pretty easy, the next tier of complexity requires a much better understanding of what is possible.
For instance if I were to track the daily COVID-19 data here https://covidtracking.com/api/v1/states/daily.json.
How would I calculate the following:
I’m hoping there is a document that lays out all of the options and how to use them?
Thank you for posting your question.
To start with, please see the following documentation page for a detailed overview of all the features available under calculated values: https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/calculated-values
We also think it might be helpful to check out the full list of supported aggregation functions in our technical specifications: https://www.flexmonster.com/technical-specifications/
Answering your questions:
differenceaggregation. We’ve built a quick sample to illustrate this function in action: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/kuosLyzf/
% differenceaggregation provided by Flexmonster. It is important to understand that the
% differenceaggregations are calculated based on neighboring hierarchy members. Therefore, to calculate the growth rate over a specific period of time, you need to filter the date field in a way that the start and end dates of the period are displayed. Please see the following sample illustrating this approach: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/49gk8m7t/
Alternatively, you can create your own aggregation functions when building a custom data source API implementation, although this option also requires some work on your side.
We hope we’ve managed to help you with your questions. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions we can help you with.
Hope you’re doing well!
We are just checking in to make sure you’ve received our response to this question. Do you think you could give us an estimate of how important it is for you to have the ability to use logarithms in formulas?
Thank you in advance and looking forward to hearing from you.
How are you?
We were wondering if you’ve received our last reply. Could you please give us any insights on our previous inquiry?
