Pivot Table for Text instead of Values

I'd like to request an option for a pivot table to contain text instead of values. This way I can have a rank 1-10 as the rows, weeks as the columns and the name as the values and then I can watch how the values shift in rank over the weeks. I.e. week 1, Person A was ranked 10, then they bumped up to rank 5 the next week, then down to 6 the following week, etc.

    Hey @Juliann_Potter!

  • @Juliann_Potter if you already have an ETL that returns you the rank of each user each week like this:

    then you can achieve what you want with a pivot table, but instead of using one of the predefined aggregations, you'll need to create a beast mode and use that as your value, something like

    MAX(`Person`)
    

    would do the trick and produce the following outcome:

    If multiple people might end up with the same rank, you might wan to use LISTAGG as your function instead to put a comma separated list of names when multiple users might match for the same rank in the same week.

    Hope this helps :)
