don't want to display "Operation type" in my pivot table


I am trying to create a pivot table in that I don't want to display "Operation type" (Sum / Count/ Average / Literal) in my pivot table.


I want to remove Operation type in my pivot table view.

Is there a way to do it permanently? Any help is appreciated!

Hi @Sadeesh Narendran ,

We can suggest hiding the whole pivot panel into the view mode: go to the Pivot Table macro settings -> Options tab -> Hide control panel.

If you want to organize your result pivot table into a better way, you may rename its Operational type column - wrap your Pivot Table macro into the Table Transformer macro and use the following SQL query:

Sun 1-2.png

SELECT T1.'Status', T1.'Count' AS 'Whatever name you want'

Sun 1-3.png

If you don't want to show this column in the result table at all, just don't list it in you SQL query. For example, "SELECT T1.'Status' FROM T*" will publish only the first "Status" column.

Hope it may help your case.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ Thanks Katerina! Here again when I use SQL i get all listed duplicate items, but I want the rows to be merged something like below.

Hi @Sadeesh Narendran ,

Please try the following option: wrap your Pivot Table into the Table Filter macro.

Here is your two-dimensional pivot:

Now you go the the Table Filter macro settings -> Filters tab and check the Hide columns option:

Mon 4-2.png

And navigate to the Filtration tab -> Set filters' default values and choose the last column which you want to hide:

So, the structure of your pivot table will be preserved.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_  Thanks for your step by step explanation. I did followed all your steps but Im not getting that column "Literal of Release Date" to hide.

Hi @Sadeesh Narendran , it's a strange situation - if you see the column into the Pivot Table macro, it should be also visible via the Table Filter macro.

So, please, check the version of your app - the current one is 7.6.5.

And raise a support request here. Please attach your page storage format: upper right corner of the page > menu ... > View page storage format.

Please update the app and check if the issue is still present.

If yes, then create a support request - I've warned our support team about the issue.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ Thanks for all your help! Unfortunately its my corporate App, I cant upgrade. I will raise the request internally.


Thanks for ur help!

Thanks @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ the amazing thread above. I am facing one issue after following the above all the instructions. 

my setup -

  1. I am merging two tables
  2. creating pivot
  3. filtering that table

but I am not able to get expected. 


  • 2 tables =>

and after following the above all instructions I reached at this output 

but want to hide the Name column (red arrowed) . 

2022-05-19 22_09_08-Mouse Highlight Overlay.png

and when I tried to do the same via hiding that column .

it makes it shown as below. the team1 table header label is gets missed .

2022-05-19 22_09_51-Mouse Highlight Overlay.png

Is it some issue or I am missing something. ?

Seems that your Pivot looks not like mine, please attach a screenshot of the Pivot Table macro settings. It seems that you use the Name column twice and get a kinda strange aggregation: first in one column, than in two columns divided by teams.

And again in the initial example you should hide the Literal of Name column. So, maybe give a structure of the result table that you want to achieve.

I can suggest such settings for your case:

Fri 8-1.png

Fri 8-2.png

Fri 8-3.png

Fri 8-4.png

Seems that the result table looks exactly as you need.

Oh My god! My expectation was different but this is superb and amazing and much better Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_  .

I was trying to make each team member name in different rows actually and spent some hours, but I guess that is not possible 😇

But this is really amazing and simple to go ahead with ✔ .

Thank  you @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ ⚡ 🤘 .

What are you using to create this table, and from where is it drawing its data?
