Re: Reordering Attributes
03-15-2017 03:55 PM
I am brand new to MS, I have read through every forum post that I could find on the topic and cannot find a clear answer, (espeically as most posts seem to be very old). Here is my question:
How do you reorder attributes so that they appear in an order other than alphabetically?
I am building a funnel visualization, and "Total Web Traffic" should be before "Check Outs" (just as an example.)
Thanks for your help.

Thank you so much for your quick response. Any suggestions on how to handle this. Here was one thought I had.
If I divide the data up by unique attribute type could I import each as it's own data set and then order the attributes in the attribute field window manually?
Or I guess I could call them "1. Website Traffic" and then "2. Unique Visitors" and then.... "7. Checkouts" etc.
Sort of sloppy but might get the job done.

We have similar requirements in our environment. We're multi tenant so many of our clients have a varying degree of sort required. to handle this, we've created a separate database column called "Sort" which has a numberic value to control the sort. Then, on the MicroStrategy attribute, add that column as a attribute form and define it as the sort on the attribute. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestions. I am still having trouble. I can get the funnel to build out based on the sort table, so it will render correctly in that regard. But I can't seem to get the labels to be applied from the column where the data is actually called something meaningful.
Can you explain further how to allow one piece of data to sub for another, or how to apply labels for one vs. another. Or?
Thank you so much for your time on this. I really appreciate you.
