Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

Let's make some modifications on the beast modes:

 

Resolved:

SUM(CASE WHEN `Status`='Resolved' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)

 

Open:

SUM(CASE WHEN `Status`='Resolved' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)

 

Don't mind the SUM() as it is just another way of counting the cases.Apply these ones with no aggregation. I did a graf by week and the results seem similar to yours:

Hope this helps, let me know if it works.

Hi,

 

You can use on a beast mode :

 

IFNULL(YOUR_FIELD, 0)

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

Hi Ricardo,

 

I actually tried this on two of my fields but it doesn't seem to change anything on the chart.  I tried it on the field being counted in the Y axis and also tried it in the Series.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

I see...

 

I think that is because you are lacking dates in your x-axis.

Can you send a table view of your data?

 

Meanwhile, I'll think of something to address this if it's the case.

 

Regards

Table view attached.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

Ok,

 

I'm a little confused here. Does Case Number represent the number of cases that were open or solved in a given Date. What is the goal of the card?

 

If you could enlighten me a little more in order to give you the best answer.

 

Regards,

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear.  What I'm doing on the card is counting the number of `Case Number` and using `Status` as the series.  This shows me how many cases were opened each week and of those, which ones are still open and which ones are resolved.  What I'm looking to do is to show that '0' are still open for the gaps in the chart.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

Ok,

 

So, if I correctly understood the card goal, give this a go:

 

Create 2 Beast Modes like this :

 

BeastMode OPEN:

CASE WHEN `Status`='Open' THEN `Case Number` ELSE 0 END

 

BeastMode Resolved:

CASE WHEN `Status`='Resolved' THEN `Case Number` ELSE 0 END

 

Then apply them to your card this way:

I think this will give you the expected results.

 

Hope this helps, don't hesitate to ask if you need more help on this.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

So I just tried this and SUM is not an option when I do this.  I can either COUNT or use No Aggregation.  When I applied this with COUNT, it looks like it combines to two values (open, resolved) into the same line on the chart.

Re: Using Beast Mode to substitute null fields

Ok,

 

Can you share a sample of the dataset you are getting the data from?

I wrongly thought that the table you sent was it, but it is just the table view of the card.
