Hide all but 1st child
I am currently trying to figure out if there is a way to hide all but the first "child" in a crosstab. Is there a way I can do that with visual agents?
For example if we have:
*Column* T-Shirt | *Column* Date Sales
Red T-Shirt | 7/27/21 6:02am
| 7/27/21 7:38am
| 7/27/21 9:45am
I would only want to show the first child "7/27/21 6:02am".
Any tips or suggestions are appreciated!
This should do the trick, you probably need to tweak it to fit your data though.
Create a new column, I named it filter
Is to ensure that we always show the the parrent.
Counts which row a child is, if it is the 1'st we want 1 as result, otherwise 0.
Finally you use a visibility agent to hide where the filter = 0
Sounds like you data dimension is not a hierarchy but two dimensions instead?
If so this should work
Thank you for your answer but it seems targit is not liking the "sum(d1, 0(l1), m1)", I keep getting undefined for the first step.
That worked!! Thank you so much!!!
Hi Kristoffer Drejer
I've tried your suggestion in one of my analyzes, but I can not make it work.
I have 6 dimensions (column0 (person ID), green date, yellow date, blue date, column4 and column5) and would like to hide all but the first child.. Just as Tyler
In the column 'Level' i used
sum(d1, 0(l(1,0,0,0,0,0)), m1)
and it seems like it can sum the years, but when i replace sum with count it say 1 all the way down
Do you have an idea how i solve my problem?
Hands down that issue is above what I can see a solution for.
Tyler's case was easy as he only had one child.
But in you case you have 5 Parrent / Childs, so that is a lot of if statements, which I can't wrap my head around.
I ended up solving the problem myself.
First, I made af column 'Level' and used
allcount(d1, d1:0(l(1,0,0,0,0,0)), m1)
This gave 'child' to my level 1 (person ID) the same number.
Next, I made an other column 'Tæl medlemmer' where I used
if sum(c2, 0, m1, 0) = sum(c2, -1, m1, 0) then 0 else 1
This gave each of the 'first children' 1 and the others 0, which meant I could hide all the '0 - children' with a 'Visibility agent'
