Reply To: Column Filters

Steve Parsons

Generally, it is a bad idea to use column filters on pages. APM will perform better with pivots. Having lots of columns on a page differentiated by column filters generally means that the pivots available are not suitable for your dataset, or unit conversion is required. A custom UDSR to give you the measures and dimensions in the form you require is a more maintainable approach. The exception to this is when you are using the pages as data feeds into excel workbooks. With pivots the page dimensions can change and therefore Excel formulas relying on coordinates can become invalid.
