Adding Measures

Adding Measures

To add a measure:

-Click on the Add Measures icon.  In the pop-up window you can enter the measure to be added.  To add multiple measures, enter each measure in a new line.

Include in Adoption:  Allows measures to be used in Engagement.  This is selected by default

Include in Usage Tracker:  Allows measures to be used in Usage Tracker

Create Fields and Mapping:  Selected by default


After all the measure names are input, click the Process button.

After you click the Process button, a table with Group, Name, System Name, Short Name, Column Name, Color, Adoption, Usage Tracker, Aggregation Type, Status and Action columns is generated.

Name, System Name, Column, Aggregation Type and Aggregation On are automatically populated.

The values in all columns besides Aggregation Type and Aggregation On are editable inline.  

Once any changes have been made, use the '+' from the action column to add one by one.  Alternatively you can click 'Add All' for the system to start adding the measures for you.


Note:  The page should not be closed until all measures are created.  If you close the pop up then the measures will not be created.  A warning message will be displayed before the pop-up is closed.


If there is a failure when creating a measure, the status column will show an "X".  An error message will be displayed if you hover your mouse over the X.  Once all the measures are created successfully, they can be viewed and edited from the Measures section grid.
