Using Card Values to build a calculation

I've built some very extensively filtered Card visuals to display various numbers related to my data, what I'd like to do is take the values displayed in those cards, create a calculation, and build out either another card or some other type of visual to display the result of that calculation.  There is a good thread on this, but they require building out the calculations - which is going to be difficult for me.  And there is a feature request to vote for this.

 

That said, is there is a way to take an existing set of filters being applied to a value and build a calculation to support that? ie, somewhat automagically 🙂

Re: Using Card Values to build a calculation

@eritter why not you can write a measure with the filter in it (used in card visual) and perform the calculationg. If you share what kind of filters are applied on each card, it can be easily achieved using measure.

Re: Using Card Values to build a calculation

Hi @parry2k,

The field is just a number (corresponds to the number of days a case is open), I then filter that to a specific set of dates that the case was open (3 different cards: visual level relative filters for this year,  advanced for last year, all time), and page level basic filters to exclude Industry categories (in this case just excluding Blanks), customer names (50+ selections here), and case status (just excludes one type of status). 

 

I was looking for an easy button approach 🙂
