Can you group by a Text Mode Column in a report?

Avatar

Level 4

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if there was a way to group a report by a Text Mode Column.

I have a report that Text Mode to display if a task is On Time or Late based on the completion date:

displayname=On Time

textmode=true

valueexpression=IF({actualCompletionDate}<={plannedCompletionDate},"On Time",IF({actualCompletionDate}<={handoffDate},"On Time","Late"))

valueformat=

I would love to get this into a graph that would show the completion date and then split ones that were completed on that day based on if they were on time or late. But I am not able to select that custom column as a grouping. Just trying to avoid having to export into excel to sort them all the time.

Thank you,

Kristina

Yes, you would just rewrite your expression as a formula when building a calculated field, like so:

IF(Actual Completion Date<=Planned Completion Date, "On Time", IF(Actual Completion Date<=Handoff Date, "On Time", "Late"))

Unfortunately grouping and charts can only be done if you create a calculated field on that object.

Is there a way to get the same result as I have above where it says if it is On Time or Late through a calculated field?

Hi Angelo,

I tried to follow these directions for a report with a custom column, but could not get it to work.

My value expression code is below:

displayname=Task Priority
textmode=true
valueexpression=IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="4 true", "1",IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="4 false", "1",IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="3 true", "2",IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="3 false", "3", IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="2 true", "4", IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="2 false", "5", IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="1 true", "6", IF(CONCAT({priority},' ',{isCritical})="0 true", "6", "7"))))))))
valueformat=

 

Would you please reply with everything I need to include to wizard this into a calculated field?

Thank you so much!!!!

Angelo, thank you so much! That worked perfectly. I will be glad to not have to do any manual data manipulation to get the results we want! - Kristina
