I’m fairly sure what I try seems to be impossible.
I’m using Dashboard filters often. But I have a query where I calculate cumulative sum of a distinct count of a specific field in a result set grouped by date (weeks). This is done with a two stage summary.
This is possible to put in a Metabase query, but if I add a filter to this query from a dashboard, then the filter is applied on the first result set - so after the first summary - instead of on the initial query data. Which means the filter is not working.
Is there someone who knows how to resolve this? Could it be added to the Metabase features?
Let’s say I have a table with transactions. The records have four columns: from, to, transaction, timestamp.
Users can have multiple transactions. But I would like to have a count of the distinct number of “from”-values per week so I can see how many users actually did a transaction. That’s the first grouping. Then I group again to have the cumulative count of distinct “from”-values. Again per week.
This is perfectly possible in the query view.
But let’s say I use this query as a basis for a dashboard and now I would like to filter the “to”-column with a dashboard filter, so I can have the same query run for a specific destination of transactions.
This is currently not possible, because the filter is automatically applied on the result of the first grouping instead of on the initial data…
Your github-issues do not mention this problem, so I don’t really see why they’re relevant.
