Beast Mode Help: Summary number to show % of transaction type

I have a dataset where there is a column name 'Ship Via Group' that contains three distinct values.  One of which, "Counter / WC" I need to show in the summary number for the card - "What percentage of orders are Counter / WC?" 

 

Sample data is attached, note that order number may appear multiple times because orders may have 1 or more items.

 

Here is the beast mode I tried, but am getting no value returned.  I'm a noob... I admit it...

 

(CASE when `Ship Via Group`='%Counter%' then COUNT(DISTINCT `Order Number`) else 0

END) / COUNT(DISTINCT `Order Number`)

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance!

Hi, lets fix your beastmode first to see if that gets you where you want to be. Do this instead: COUNT (DISTINCT CASE WHEN `Ship Via Group` LIKE '%Counter%' THEN `Order Number` ELSE 0 END) / COUNT (DISTINCT `Order Number

Re: Beast Mode Help: Summary number to show % of transaction type

I have an issue that I can't seem to remedy... I have a pie chart that is displaying three different order modes.

 

There are a total of 173 unique order numbers:  

  • 96 are "Our Truck"
  • 58 are "Counter / WC"
  • 19 are "UPS / MFT"

I am focused on the "Counter / WC" piece which by dividing the values stated above is 33.5% (58 / 173).

 

  • PIE VALUE is Beast Mode:  COUNT(DISTINCT `Order Number`)
  • PIE NAME is "Ship Via Group" that contains the text values noted above.

 

Everything checks out in the pie chart (% and value for each item), all is well.

 

The Beast Mode for the summary number (which started this discussion) is overstating the count by 1 which causes the summary number and the chart value to not match.  The summary number is displaying 34.1% (59 / 173).

 

Is this a bug?  I have looked at my data, and don't see any issues - there are 58 orders.

 

Is there a way to subtract 1 in the Beast Mode?

Based on the spreadsheet with the data you attached , Can you check the order number 14178051 , it looks like that one is both Counter / WC and Our Truck.

Re: Beast Mode Help: Summary number to show % of transaction type

@swagner, I recommend testing a slight change to the beastmode to remove the ELSE 0 statement in the numerator because the COUNT DISTINCT will actually count the 0 as a distinct value and thus inflate your top number by 1.

 

COUNT (DISTINCT CASE WHEN `Ship Via Group` LIKE '%Counter%' THEN `Order Number` END) / COUNT (DISTINCT `Order Number)
