Using Total as figure in Beast calc
This might be obvious, but I couldn't find how to do this. Is it possible to use the total figure (row total) as an individual figure in beast mode calcs? I have tried to do the following calc:
Amount/SUM(Amount)
The above calc is only doing the calculation on a row by row basis and is not using the sum figure/total figure.

You're not able to do this at the card level and would need to calculate this at within your ETL/Data Transform process.
Calculations at the card level are viewed "rowbyrow" so if your calculation is comparing Amount in Row 1, a SUM(Amount) would only return the amount of Row 1 at Row 1 since it's not grouped and still broken out by each row.
An alternative would be to calculate the SUM(Amount) ahead of time and add it as a constant value column to your dataset. This would let you do Amount / (Precalculated SUM(Amount)) for each row.
