Visual Reports: New functions in calculations

There are some new functions available in calculations: DATEPART and  DATENAME.

  • DATEPART([field], ‘part’) can be applied to dates only. The function returns a specified part of a given date, as an integer value.

Possible parts are minute, hour, dayofweek, isodayofweek, dayofmonth, dayofyear, week, month, quarter, year. Example:

 DATEPART(DATE('31-Mar-2018'),'month')  ----> 3
  • DATENAME([field], ‘part’) can be applied to dates only. The function returns a specified part of a given date, as a string value.

Possible parts are minute, hour, dayofweek, dayofmonth, dayofyear, week, month, quarter, year. Example:

 DATENAME(DATE('31-Mar-2018'), ‘dayofweek’) ----> ‘Saturday’

Let’s say you built a new requests trend chart for the last 2 years and you want to compare the number of requests over the years for the same period of time (for example for the same month).

Below is initial chart.

To make the comparison easier to visualize, we recommend displaying the compared periods side by side. To do this, you would need to add the following calculations to the X axis:

DATENAME([Create Date], 'month')
YEAR([Create Date])

Visual Reports: New post aggregation filters

We have added the ability to filter out chart data by having top N or bottom N records. To apply these post aggregation filters you will need to open your chart in edit mode and click the “Browse and Filter” button, “Chart data” tab.

Let’s say you have chart with completed effort by user for any current Release and you need to filter out the 3 users with the highest performance.

Below is initial chart.

Visual Reports: Advanced filters for Entity Reports

You may now apply advanced filters by type for entities' source (previously it was available only for cumulative and history reports).

Let’s suppose you have a chart that shows Team Effort per Release and you want to exclude User Stories linked to Features to prevent redundant effort values.
Below is the initial chart.
