You really need to add sorting to your Kendo UI pivotgrid for flat/local data sources. The entire point of a pivot grid is to analyze data. We did a POC with it for our salesmen. The feedback was: "It's almost useless if I can't sort it and see my top and bottom sellers, etc...". So, we're swapping out the pivotgrid for Infragistics Ignite UI. It's a shame too, cause most everything else is there.
The PivotConfigurator is very static. It would be nice to change the layout. For example some options: - Hide / visibility of all four elements (Row, Column, Measure, Fieldlist) - Position of all four elements (Row, Column, Measure, Fieldlist)
We have an existing application that was developed with ExtJS, that we'd like to move to AngularJS+KendoUI. The only thing that's holding us back is that you don't have the ability to created editable PivotGrids. That feature is available in Sencha's product, and our users use it extensively. Ex: http://examples.sencha.com/extjs/6.0.2/examples/kitchensink/#rangeeditor-pivot-grid
Expanding programmatically all paths in a level in a pivot grid is coumbersome. One should be able to expand all itlems in a level. Also when one row.expand and column.expand configuration should work for all levels.
Kendo pivotgrid does not allow us to hide 'All' row/column.'All' row/column is not always needed in a OLAP report. Excel would allow us to hide/eliminate subtotall rows/columns. pivotgrid needs similar functionality. In general emulate Excel pivotgrid functionality in kendo pivotgrid
In SSAS world you can often see mega cubes with many measures and dimensions. Currently Kendo pivot grid configurator does not show measure groups and therefore there is no way to filter dimensions and filters that belong to a specific measure group.
Kendo pivotgrid currently has only row and column filters. Filters and Filter area are also important. See other pivotgrid implementations - especially DevExpress ASPxPivotgrid and Excel pivot table
Now if you set filterable true for KendoPivotGrid you get two options - Include Fields and Fields Filter. In some cases you need only one of this options and it is not good to be with one option - filterable.
In some applications data will be so huge to load on PivotGrid, and the manipulation of filtering, reordering and changing dimensions between rows and columns take a long time, freezering the browser for a moment. With data paging this frozen time is avoided.
What we would need is te possibility to show the percentage of the gand total summary. For example: row / column value 1 / 2 2 / 3 3 / 5 summary / 10 => change calculation to percent of grand total 1 / 20% 2 / 30% 3 / 50%
At the moment it's possible to drag & drop fields into the grid. But it's not possible to set the field at a specific position. That is very unusual. I would expect to see a position marker while hovering with a fields over the drop area. When ein drop the field it goes there where the marker was.
An OData feed that supports 'OData Extension for Data Aggregation Version 4.0' can be queried for all of the information required to populate a PivotGrid with rows and columns that are paged, sortable (including by different aggregates of the measures), and filterable, and have all calculations performed on the server. The pivot grid can be popualted using data obtained from a couple of requests to a suitable feed -- or feeds. Suppose we have an OData feed that we'd like to display in a pivot grid. Some of the columns in the feed will become dimensions, and some will become measures. (We may display the same measure more than once, with different aggregates applied.) In order to display the row/column headings for the pivotGrid we need to select the distinct values from the 'dimension' columns. The filtering provided by OData allows the row/column headings to be filtered, and even paged (in both directions). Sorting is more difficult because we want to sort not only by the row/column heading values themselves, but also by (aggregates of) the measures. However, that's a problem for the server side! In order to populate the body of the table we need to calculate a load of aggregates from the measure columns in the base dataset for the rows that correspond to visible row/column headers. We can write a rather long OData $filter expression to obtain the required rows from the original OData feed, and then aggregate them. All of this functionality is available in 'OData Extension for Data Aggregation Version 4.0'. However, as an interim solution we may establish two 'helper' OData feeds associated with the original feed: one for the dimensions for populating the row and column headers, and one for the measures to populate the body of the table. The grid has already established a convention for asking for aggregates computed on the server, although this can be overridden using parameterMap anyway.
As per this post: http://www.telerik.com/forums/pivotgrid-bug When using PivotGrid with a flat data source the handles for dragging the dimensions are labelled with a different string to the dimension headers. The dimension headers are labelled with the dataSource.schema.cube.dimensions.[name].caption. The dimension drag handles are labelled with the dataSource.rows.name (or dataSource.columns.name). Now, the dataSource.rows.name must be the key in the dataSource.schema.cube.dimensions of the dimension and this must also be a key in each item in the data array -- the field that stores the value of the dimension -- and therefore is in general not suitable for showing to users. In any case, it seems to me to be a bug that the drag handle is labelled with a different string to the dimension caption.
Currently measures are displayed as dimensions and there is no visual difference between them. I suggest you showing measures as a very first item in the pivot grid configurator. Also please use a meaningful icon for this item.
In the .NET for Ajax PivotGrid, you can set a caption for all fields, row and column. This does not seem possible in the kendo based version (MVC). The only property I see on a column or row is if we want it expanded by default or not. Here is how it is done on the Webforms version of the control <Fields> <telerik:PivotGridRowField DataField="Rep" ZoneIndex="1" Caption="Rep" </telerik:PivotGridRowField>
It would be nice to have a chart chooser for the PivotGrid build in (a dropdown that i can place anywhere). At the moment it is really difficult to display a PivotGrid in a chart or even change the chart type on the fly. This and the convertion to a chart could be build in so every developer don't need to worry about this. What i visualize is a dropdown menu which shows all posible chart types. If i choose one, the pivot grid disapears and on it's position the choosen chart apears (optional with the PivotConfigurator in the side). From a chart i can switch back to the pivot grid or choose another chart type.
In some applications one may not want aggregation on some or all dimenions on the pivot grid and jut show the raw data.
Add the option to connect to Microsoft SSAS Tabular mode using Kendo UI PivotGrid
Kendo pivotgrid should show non-empty members in filters - currently when we open the row or column filter to see the members in the dimension all the members in the dimension seem to be shown. At least we need a field to let us indicate that the filter entries should be filtered out using 'non empty' clause.
Currently the Pivot Grid have both Column and Row that will be used to be on display for Jquery type. Please add in additional Filter like others software givers on pivotgrid. This additional Filter is not used for display, as it is used for filter only.
