Dynamic grouping allows you to create groups of elements based on the field data type that you select. For example, in the wf_retail_lite database, there are a number of brands of televisions. Using the dynamic grouping functionality, you can create groups based on the popularity of a particular brand. The first group might include top sellers such as LG and Sony. The second group might contain the remaining brands (Panasonic, GPX, Supersonic, Tivax, and Audiovox). This would allow you to group top sellers into one group, and the remaining brands into another group.
Note: The Create Group option is only available for dimension fields of non-numeric format or attribute.
You can also specify multiple, unique groupings in the same session. For example, you might want to group the data to indicate groups of products, or specific regions.
Note: If you want to exclude a specific data element from your analysis, you can use the filter functionality.
The grouping that you specify is applied and this new group then replaces the original field that you selected in the Query pane. The name that you specify when creating the group is reflected in the Query pane.
Note: You can edit the group once it has been created by right-clicking on the group field and clicking Edit Group.
Note: The Create Group option is also available in the Data pane shortcut menu.
The Create a Group dialog box displays.
Note: To ungroup values, click a group and then click Ungroup.
Your grouped data will display in the Data pane when your report, chart, or visualization refreshes, as shown in the following image.
