Interactive Metric Trends


I am new to creating analytics in BO. I am trying to create an interactive metric ternd that is sliced by region.

Questions/Problems that I have.

1. When I select interactive Metric Trends I get a drop down under the select data section that is grayed out and say Universe Qery. My question is how do I create a Universe Query?

2. When I define a query I select a Universe that I created in Designer that has three objects. Region, Date, Sales. I do not see where I tell the metric to slice by Region?

For Dimension for X-axis and slider I select Date. I have tried to add the Region to Analytic Filter and nothing happens

When I get the results metric I only see Sales by date. No Metric Name, No Metric Value, No Metric Trend.

No Regions

Can someone point me in the correct direction as to how to set these up.

    Hi David,

    Have you created the metric? or do you have any metrics created yet? - this may the reason why you it is greyed out or you can not see any other options.

    Basic steps... (you can refer to the product documentation for details)

    Create the metric universe

    Import the universe to DM

    Created the Slice (Dimension) in DM

    Created the sliced metric (using the measure from the universe and slice created above)

    Run the metric to load data

    Use it in the analytics.

    Hope this helps
