Calculation cost for each product for designated period of time
I am trying to make a operational dashboard.
the original excel table looks pretty much the same with the table you see on the lower left corner.
I want to figure out a way to effectively show the cost of each project.
my dimension is "Project Name" and I set my expression as
there is one problem with my approach. It works fine when all the projects share same star and end date for all of the resources.
but if person A and person B in same project have different start and end date for the project, it does not give me the correct calculation of overall project cost and I know that it is because I set my dimension as "Project Name." and I know that it is because I have set the expression as Max([End Date]) - Min([Start Date]). it will pick up the latest end date and earliest start date.
can anyone help me with a way to calculate the cost of each project correctly even though every individual involved in the project does not have the same duration of involvement into the project and when everybody has different rate?
and another question is,
I want to be able to get monthly or quarterly cost for each project. I want to do it my clicking on month name or quarter name. but the way my bars are presented on the gantt chart is by max(end date)-min(start date) so it only represents length but not telling qlikview from which day to which day. So I don't know how I should proceed with this too. Please share your insight community!!
