Facet values (against dimensions) change automatically when measure is selected in SAC?

For our users, the lack of a responsive facet value in SAC was a POC killer. The functionality in SAC of when a measure was selected and the dimension facet values were not automatically shown/updated.

As shown above this was a native element of Business Objects Explorer; in SAC the user has to click on each facet and manually request a value. Select (...) > Show Measure > Accounts. For our team who wants a quick number every additional click to get back to a view the had in Business Objects Explorer was a killer.

I ask the community if this has been an issue in your organization, and if so how did you handle it.

I've also raised and innovation request and would appreciate if you could show your support:

    Hello Steve Patane,

    I think auto update feature is also available in default mode. Please check below sample -

    Please let me know if you have any query.

    Hi @Debjit Singha; thanks for your reply. Sorry to be clear I was not talking about the results panel.

    In BOBJ Explorer if i clicked 'Order value' in the measures window, then numbers next to Country, Customer, Date and Product Type would all change automatically to show the 'Order Value' values. That is before i click on any dimension value.

    • Auto update is happening with dimensions-

      2nd image - clicked on Country - United State ; rest of the facets auto adjusted.

      3rd image - clicked on Tandem tires; rest of the facets auto adjusted.

      4th image - clicked on "sports bunny"; rest of the facets auto adjusted.

      Though, changing measure section will not auto update dimensions. Dims are fixed based on what was selected from acount dimentions. Although you can have multiple measure appear next to dimentions.

      Note: For some reason I was not able to upload the gif file with the recording.

    Exactly Debjit Singha:

    "changing measure section will not auto update dimensions. Dims are fixed based on what was selected from account dimensions. Although you can have multiple measure appear next to dimensions"

    This killed our trial of SAC with our users; I am interested to know if you or other also struggled with this loss of functionality in SAC; and how your users reacted to it.

    Jeffrey Mastro Thomas ROMAGNE Ajay Gupta Wolfgang Bidner Andy Skinner Martijn van Foeken Alvin Vu Hi All, you have all supported improvements to Explorer within SAC before, could i raise this one to your attention. This was a killer for our user base; and is really a hot topic for us to restore the functionality.

    Thanks,

    Steve
