EazyBI: Is it possible to aggregate the time estimate released on a monthly basis?


The requirement is to represent the sum of estimate released every month (also in the future).

There should be the Time dimension in the Rows which represents the fix versions which release date is in the month (we have like many small releases every monty). The fix versions name is usually starting with "2016-EL".

Our first try was to filter the fix versions with the 2016-EL names and generate the month Time entries based on the release date but it is kind of tricky.

The Columns should contain the sum of time estimate and optionaly the sum of issues released in the 2016-EL fix versions per month.

Our first try was to put the 2016-EL fixVersions on the Rows and it does the job but the x asis is not sorted per release date and we do not see the trend of how much estimate is released every month and will be released in the future.

Has someone created such a report before? Are there some hints or examples somewhere?

We appriciate every help on this. Thanks.

I finally managed to get the issues aggregated with the following MDX custom measure: 

    [Fix Version].[Version].Members,
      [Fix Version].CurrentMember.get('Release date'),
    AND ([Time].CurrentHierarchy.DefaultMember,
      [Measures].[Issues created history]) > 0
    AND [Fix Version].CurrentMember.Name MATCHES '^201\d-EL-\d.*'
  [Measures].[Issues created history]

When using it combined with the Time dimension on Rows it gives us the aggregated values by month containing the release date.

Hi Michal,

In this case, you could try adding "Fix Version" dimension in rows and measures "Original estimated hours" and "issues resolved" in columns of your report.

Additionally, you should select measure "Version release date" which you use just to sort the report (by clicking on this column and selecting to order it) and then you remove this measure, but doing so the report will stay filtered.
