December 17, 2018 report filters update
On December 19, 2018, Aha! will be making an update that may affect the data displayed in your reports.
What is changing?
If you have a report with any of the following data combinations, your report will be affected by this change.
Case 1: Product name, Competitor name
Case 2: Goal name, Master feature name
Case 3: Goal name, Feature name
Case 4: Product name, Persona name,
Case 5: Initiative name, Release name
Case 6: Goal name, Release name
Case 7: To-do name, Release name
Case 8: To-do name, Release phase name
Current behavior: Today, reports containing these combinations display a limited set of primary record results. For example, in case 3, the report would only display goals that are linked to features.
Future behavior: Starting December 19, 2018, reports containing these combinations will display all primary record results. For example, in case 3, all goals will be displayed, including ones that are not linked to features.
Why is this being changed?
The purpose of this change is to drive consistent filtering behavior across all reports. Right now, there is some inconsistency in the way that reports join data types together. This change will ensure that the data in your reports is presented using the same methodology as all other reports.
Can the reports be changed back to their previous form?
Yes. If you'd like to revert your report back to the way that it was prior to the change, you can customize the way that blank values appear in your report using the is blank and is not blank filter values.
Is blank: When enabled, this filter will display data elements that have no values set for the chosen field.
Is not blank: When enabled, this filter will display data elements that have a value set for the chosen field.
