Creating "Other" group in a chart

How do I write a beast mode that will group a large collection of small values into an "Other" group (Say any with a sum of values under 200) without specifying the members of that group?


Edit: I should mention that these would be sums of multiple values. Meaning multiple rows per day but the sum is still <200 in the time frame specified. 

I want a pretty bar chart without needing to export to Excel.


  • If there is only one instance for each value (i.e. each customer name appears only once) then you could use:


    Title the beast mode formula something like "Adjusted Group"


    case when `Value` < 200 then 'Other' else `Group` end


    `Value` = your values you are checking to see if they are smaller than 200

    `Group` = the grouping you are trying to sort by

  • Yes, I should have specified that there are multiple values in each. I'm looking for the sum.

    I'll edit the post. 

  • I'm not sure if this can be done in beast mode, but I know it can be done in mysql and in ETL transform.


    If it were me, I would just "group by" as a transform for the relevant field and then run the same formula that I posted above.  Is there any reason you would still need to see the individual entries?  That would be the only drawback of this solution.

    Is the goal to have this group created for your category (usually X-) axis, or is this for your series in your chart?
