Allow data transformations in client organizations

Ian Thompson shared this idea 6 years ago
Idea Logged

Currently Data Transformations are only available in the default organization.

Expanding this functionality to client organizations is not currently in the road-map but if you are interested in having this ability, please up-vote this idea.

If this feature is important to you, we would also be interested in knowing a bit more about your use case.

Nathan,

YellowFin is used as our advanced reporting solution for our Point of Sale software.

Multi Tenancy feature is the foundation of enabling clients to report their sales figures.

We have a need for a few of our clients to be able to regularly import reservations data from csv provided by other systems into our client's database to allow reporting of the combined reservations and sales figures. We were hoping to achieve this with the Yellowfin 7.4 transformations feature.

Regards

Just to revisit this.

Unfortunately at this point in time, this is not something that is planned for the roadmap.

If the need for this grows, we can revisit.

Sorry for the bad news Ian.

Regards,

David

Hi David,

I guess data transformations are still only possible in the default-org, right? Any plans to change that?

Best regards

Hi Ingo,

That's correct; for now transformations are only possible in the default org. We do still have this idea open, however the priority is low, due to it not receiving much interest. If more people come and upvote this idea, I'm sure the team would be happy to take a look at it again!

Kind regards,

Chris

Added my vote to this idea - we have multiple client orgs that use heavy calculated fields in reports the affect performance, and would really benefit from having these data identified and calculations managed in a data transformation and written back to the database to then be aggregated in the report rather than having to find data, calculate and aggregate within the one report every single time it is run.

Thanks,

Brendan

Hi Samjith,

I hope you're well.

I see that my colleague has pointed you to this existing enhancement. Although this was previously put into the backlog, our product manager has heard your request for an update and is looking again into the feasibility of its implementation.

When I find out more, I'll let you know. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi @chris


It has been six years since this one request was raised, why is it taking so long to implement? Even if it's an existing feature in default org.


Thanks

Hi Samjith,

It depends on whether a particular idea fits into the current product roadmap; not all submitted features are immediately implemented. However, the roadmap can change over time or some resources may be freed up to take a look at older enhancement requests if there's still interest.

Please do keep up with your enthusiasm for features you like to see in Yellowfin!

Kind regards,

Chris
