    I am new to this Software but have been using Power BI for years. I am not sure why the program will not allow me to make averages of simple metrics such as the number of tickets solved per person.

    Hi Chris, I'm sorry for the late response.

    One way you could do this is (using the Tickets dataset) to add the metric SUM(Tickets solved - Daily average), and then add Assignee name to the Rows panel.

    I hope this helps,

    How can I rather than looking at the MED look at the 90% percentile for example? In our case, that's a lot more telling than the MED and it's much more the metric we would want to check.

    Does SUM() round up to the nearest integer? One metric of ours is supposed to be 9.5 but instead displays 10.

    Hey Alex,

    I confirmed with one of our Explore experts and it looks like most aggregators would round up to the nearest integer by default. If this isn't the desired result for you, you'll want to manually change the decimals places via the Chart Configuration>Display format

    Let me know if you have any other questions :)

    I'm trying to count inbound calls but my COUNT and D_COUNT values are different for the same calls. I see inbound calls with 1 ticket number counting as 2 when I pull COUNT but 1 when I use D_COUNT.

    What action is being applied to cause a value of 2 to be given in COUNT?

    Hello Pierce Benlian,

    So when you use COUNT, this will show up as two calls because sometimes there can be two or more calls attached to a ticket. I would recommend using D_COUNT for your reporting if you are looking to report on just the number of tickets with calls. If you feel though that this is incorrect and possibly a bug, let us know, and we'll investigate this further for you.

    Best regards.

    How can we customize the count to use the 75th or 90th percentile to measure First Response Time?

    I wish to display Full Resolution Time (Business Hours) in a grid/table. However, in the Calculated Attributes, I am only offered it via aggregators as per above. I simply want to display a column with Ticket ID and other columns + Full resolution time but cannot do it. Strictly speaking, full resolution time is a metric rather than an attribute but how can I display in a grid ?
