Hello dear community!
When using 2 different metrics built with 2 different filters in a same question I noticed Metabase adds the filters for each metric whereas I was expecting each one is calculated on its own filter.
Is it the expected final behaviour? I think it would be more relevant if each metric would conserve it's own filter.
For example if we define two metrics like:
Metric A = Sum(Turnover) Where Dim1 = "a" Metric B = Sum(Turnover) Where Dim2 = "b"
Then asking for Metric A and B in the same question willl result the request to be :
Sum(Turnover), Sum(Turnover) Where Dim1 = "a" AND Dim2 = "b"
Sum(Turnover Where Dim1 = "a"), Sum(Turnover Where Dim2 = "b")
Wich would be achievable in SQL with a simple
case when statement.
The workaround is to use
SumIf function in the view and using a same Segmetn for each metric but I guess this design is more restrictive .
What do you think?
