Assignee choicelist includes all users

    +1 to this feedback. It's a major setback from GoodData in order to quickly pull reports on Agents only.

    Also deeply need this. With any report on ticket touches, solves, by agent,  it's much easier to exclude past agents so that when you add agents down the road, reports show them without you manually having to go in and add them in the selection every time. Because all users are being listed as assignee's, this is effectively impossible, and I'll have to manually edit every single assignee report the next time we add someone to the team.

    This is getting ridiculous. Not only do you list all of the users with all agents, but if an agent has a name change (even though the name change is on the same user record) you have to include that person as if they are two people :(

    Is anyone else running into a blank assignee showing up that isn't on the include or exclude list? There's no NULL value for me to exclude.

    +1. 
    P.S. I was suggested to use this workaround - calculated attribute.

    I also need the ability to only choose agents when selecting by assignee. Users can not be assigned tickets so why they are even an option? Its very time consuming to scroll through 5000+ users to choose the 60 agents you want to include. I understand by Groups, however I have some agents in groups I want to exclude on some reports therefore I need to choose by assignee only.

    +1 on this. Having a list of all users in the Assignee filter might be useful to someone, but I can't really imagine how.

    I would like to be able to create a dashboard that allows us to view certian metrics by agent all at once. Right now, we are A/B testing a new call flow, and I'm trying to see what effect it has on multiple metrics like custoemer satisfaction, upsells, retention, etc.

    I'm able to build this pretty easily for individual queries, but having this in a dashboard filter would make it easy to look at multiple metrics at the same time instead of having to pull these up in different tabs or adjust the assignee on each individual query.

    Same here, I think it add complexity to the product and I don't understand the user flow where all the user would have to be listed as "Assignee".

    Would it be possible to choose the default value of this?

    This is literally causing me physical pain. I have 3 new agents that I have to add or exclude from a variety of queries. I have to type in each of their names separately for each query. I have around 150 queries that need to be updated, which means I'm spending most of my day today searching for the name and selecting it for each agent. On top of that, you have to be very careful not to backspace too many times when you are clicked into the filter search box, as it will then try to delete the whole query.

    It would save me literal hours today to have a list of only our agents available to select from.

    It has blown my mind that this is a thing. I keep trying to move to Explore from GoodData, but then I hit stuff like this :(

    Totally agree with Terry, I really want to move to Explore but I keep finding things that GoodData does better, or that Explore doesn't do at all (another example is the seemingly hard coded limit of 50,000 rows in a query that only exists in Explore).

    I have quit even trying to use Explore until they get these things figured out. The other big issue I am having is you can not setup a query to be emailed. I use that every day in GoodData.

    Katina that is also a very frustrating problem. I've worked around it by making agent groups with just the people I want to receive the query and scheduling a dashboard email to that group. It is far from ideal.

    +1 I honestly can't fathom why the filter would even include End Users, or at least not have the ability to automatically filter them out.

    I just started exploring Explore and was up to this point convinced that I should stop using GoodData all together. But when I came a cross this, I would say, deal breaker, I am not sure if I have the time to manually add all my agents to the reports I am about to do. I have aprox 56000 end users in my lists, and can't even scroll to find my agents. I actually need to make a list of all my agents and then MANUALLY write their whole name to even find them. This is way too time consuming. Not at all optimal I am afraid.

    Hi,

    I used a calculated attribute to create a data filter for my dashboard. It is not an ideal solution but it beats manually selecting all the names from a very long list of users.

    It basically gives me a list of all the active agents. This excludes expired agents whose accounts were converted back to end-users or deleted. 

    The downside of this method is that you have to do it for every data set and the field names are different for each set. This particular example is from the ticket updates data set. 

    IF ([Assignee role] = "Agent") 
    AND ([Assignee status] = "Active")
    THEN
    [Assignee name]

    ENDIF
