PerformancePoint Filter Issue

Hello,

I have a SharePoint 2010 instance that I am running PerformancePoint on.

As part of the PerformancePoint dashboard I have a filter that will switch between different measures that I want the user to be able to view.

The problem is if they have made any modifications, such as drilling down, changing the filter reverts them back to the default view. Is there any way to have it such that the filter does not exhibit this behavior, instead changing the measure on whatever customization they have already made, such as being drilled down to a particular view?

Thank you!

Hi,
I am not sure and will have to re-test this.
There have been a lot of fixes with SP1 for SharePoint.
Can you perhaps explain a little bit more on what you mean with (perhaps with screenshots):
a filter that will switch between different measures that I want the user to be able to view.
A filter normally selects members for calculations hence just updating measure values but does not change anything in regards to the shown measure types.

Thanks and HTH

Hello,

We are running SP1.

The issue is that the filter is working, it will change the measures.

To illustrate, imagine that I have a measure for dollars per household, and another measure for dollars per individual. I then have data of country and city.

So I start by showing country and dollars per household. A user then does a "Show Only" on one of the countries. They then do a drill-down on City. Now, however, they want to see dollars per individual. When they click my filter to change the measure, it does successfully change the measure. However, it forgets its current drill-down and "show only" states, and reverts back the country level for dollars per individual. This forces someone to drill back down to city again to get back to the same location they were previously.

I would ideally like the measures to change in-place for more easy comparison, preventing the user from needing to re-navigate and drill back down to where they were. I am almost certain this is possible; just haven't figured it out yet. Some setting or variable I need, I am sure, that will let it stay at its current state and just change the measure.

Thanks,
Joseph Irvine
