Is there an equivalent to “show values” in a field as opposed to summarizing the unique counts?

Kabir Rao asked on September 25, 2020

Hi, noob here to Flexmonster. I have a data source that has three “dimensions” (sort of like a fact table in data warehouse speak). Each of these dimensions can have a character value. So the table looks something like this:
Department          Risk Scale             Risk Type                 Value
ABC                     Inherent Risk        Strategic Risk            Minor
ABC                     Residual Risk         Financial Risk            High

I’d want my pivot table to be such that Department is present in the “Report Filters”, Risk Scale is in the “Rows” and Risk Type is in the “Columns”. However, I’d want the values to represent the actual values here, i.e. “Minor”, “High” and so on. It’s safe to assume that for any combination of the three dimensions there is always going to be 1 “Value” field. 
Is there a way to do that using Flexmonster?

Hello, Kabir,
Thank you for writing to us.
Taking into account your case, we would like to suggest a workaround:
Please change the values of the “Value” field by switching from string to number type. For example, replace “Minor” with 1, “High” with 2. Then define the aggregation for the “Value” measure that will not change its value: for ex., “max”. Finally, use customizeCell API call to change numeric values to the corresponding string values.
We have prepared an example for illustration:
Please let us know if it helps.
