Create a Derived Metric by Selecting the Aggregation Function
You can create a derived metric by selecting the aggregation function used to calculate values in an existing metric. Aggregation functions are used to calculate subtotals for a metric (for example, Sum, Average, Standard Deviation, Median, etc.).
You can create a derived metric that calculates the average of the Revenue metric values. The derived metric is automatically named Avg(Revenue), although you can change it.
- Open the dossier you want to modify.
- Create a derived metric and reserve it for future use in a visualization. In the Datasets panel, right-click the metric to use to create a derived metric and choose Aggregate By.
- Select the aggregation function to use to calculate metric values.
