MicroStrategy - Custom Groups

Custom groups are a type of virtual attributes useful in clubbing many attributes together and presenting them as a single attribute. For example, if we want to analyze the sales result for every 4 months instead of every quarter, then we have to create a complex formula to choose these months and apply them in calculations. Instead, we can create a custom group by clubbing the required months and use this custom group as a single attribute.

Following are the steps to create a custom group.

Step 1

Open the custom group editor and drag an object from the object browser to create a custom group.
