User adjustable parameters?

I’m trying to build a metric set that does a “what if?” calculation, specifically it will let an employee select the number of hours they plan to work during the remainder of the month and the quantity and type of work they’ll do. Then formulas in the metric set would calculate where the Associate would fall in the incentive scheme, given the hours and mix of work already done in the month and the “what if?” hours and work.

My obstacle is - how to create and use the parameters for hours and quantity of work?

Can it be done without adding new fields to the data source?

Yes. Take a look at parameter placeholders.
This allows you to put a spinner / slider / textbox on the dashboard where users can select or enter numbers, and then it gets used in a formula in the metric set.

Thanks - I’d seen that. I’ll give it a try!
