Do we need to include a time intelligence on month by month basis?
How can we get the splits of costs into monthly buckets?
Right now, it's the total sum repeated in each month for the entire year.
We are actually pulling data straight from our OLTP database (the query we've written from our Cube datasource view pulls directly from the source OLTP tables for live view to get real time reporting).
The records & 5 columns in the database from left to right for individual workers / resources could be as follows:
1.Resource Bob, 50 hours, Calculated cost of $1500, Start Date 01/01/2013, Finish Date 12/05/2013
2.Resource Dan, 55 hours, Calculated cost of $1600, Start Date 05/05/2013, Finish Date 06/05/2013
3.Resource Joe, 50 hours, Calculated cost of $1500, Start Date 01/20/2013, Finish Date 11/05/2013
4.Resource Sam, 40 hours, Calculated cost of $1500, Start Date 10/01/2013, Finish Date 10/05/2013
5.Resource Tim, 30 hours, Calculated cost of $1500, Start Date 11/01/2013, Finish Date 12/05/2013
What we're trying to do is have columns going across from left to right of the calendar we setup >> October is first, and September is the 12th / last column
Each of the 12 "buckets" or months would then spread the resource costs and time
For instance, Sam would have costs and hours in October, November, and December, but nothing from January - September b/c is start and finish date range is now done starting @ January.
Bob would have nothing in the first several month "buckets" because his start date isn't until May...which is the 7th "bucket" or column since October is our first month of the time period.
