Filtering task assignment by date

I am trying to build a simple report for the count of tasks assigned to each user for this week. Typically when I’m building reports like this, I’ll use the Date (Shared) attribute to filter to this week and ignore things like start & due dates. However, when I go to my filter list, the Date (Shared) filters are not listed as options. This seems to only be happening when tasks are included in the report. 

Has anyone ran into something similar and might know why this is or how to fix it?

Hi Ryan, 

if you have a Date Dimension called "Date (Shared)" which is not available to use as a filter when the object called "tasks" is included in your report -  this is likely caused by limitations in your model and would indicate that it's not applicable in the current context of the report you're creating. You will be able to verify this, as shown in my screenshot below, it will show that some unrelated dates are hidden: 

Can you please check this and let me know if this helps? 

That appears to be it, thank you! I checked the Data Model and you are correct, the Date (Shared) dimension is not connected to Tasks….is there a way for me to update that?

Hi Ryan, 

to establish new relationships between datasets you'll need to update your Logical Data Model:

Please note: Modifying or updating your logical data model in GoodData without experience in modeling can lead to unintended consequences and data inconsistencies. Making changes to the data model without a clear understanding of the underlying data relationships and dependencies can result in data corruption and inaccurate reports. It's crucial to approach data model updates with caution and to ensure that you have the necessary expertise. Consider consulting with your team who created your model to help with this update. But if you would like to learn more about Data modeling in GoodData, I would like to recommend our free GoodData University courses which cover this topic:
