Analysis Workspace metric totals are not specific to the applied filter

The Sum of individuals is not always equal to the Total. For example in pages report the Sum of visits is not equal to the Total visits since there might be few common visits. This feature is critical when you apply a filter on the report. This is taken care well in the the Reports&Analytics. Always totals are dispalyed after deduping where ever it is required.
