Group By "Concat Distinct" Now Live!

I wanted to make a quick post to let you know about an update we made to the Group By tile in Magic. 

In your instances, you should now see the ability to choose a new options when defining how a column should be aggregated in the Group By tile: 

  • Combine distinct strings separated by , 

This allows you to create an aggregate column that includes a list of distinct values rather than having to choose just the first/last value, a count of items in the aggregation, or a non-distinct list of values. 

(Note: The equivalent in an expression/formula would be GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT argument SEPARATOR ', '))

While relatively minor, we think this change will make using Group By in Magic just a little bit nicer.  

Let me know if you have any questions or thoughts. 

Thanks!
