In 16.0.2, issue DE63899 was fixed and now the Staffing: Allocation Timeline Widgets use the view options from within the 'Allocation Timeline' tab. However, there is still an issue with the Widgets on this tab in which it is NOT using the 'Grand Totals' option. The Widgets configured with a TSV Per-Period field such as Allocation is returning a 'Sum of Period' value based on the Allocation Timeline View Options.
1. Create a Bar Chart Widget in BOTH 'Allocation Timeline' and 'Staff Grid' with the following configuration
Group By: Resource (from Staffing Object)
Sum: Allocation (from Totals section)
Only Include (filter) for Staffing Object Resource field = Veronica Miller and Hank Fisher
2. Add the widget to the view and disable it to apply any filter to the widget on BOTH workspaces
(toggle OFF 'Filter Widgets)
4. Set View Options on 'Allocation Timeline' (or use the view T-Hank-Veronica: Grand Totals)
Period Type = Months
Period Start = Start of Current Year
Period End = End of Current Year
Totals = Grand Totals
NOT WORKING AS EXPECTED: I expected the widget totals to match the rows below in the timeline.
The rows in the timeline are correct and give the Grand Total values.
If I switch the View Options to 'Sum of Periods' both the Widget and the rows in the timeline match.
Expected Results: The Widget on 'Allocation Timeline' should show an allocation amount for Grand Totals as defined on the View Options in the 'Allocation Timeline' Workspace. For this specific use case we should see the WIDGET Grand Totals 52.7k and 34.8k
Actual Results: The Widget on the 'Allocation Timeline' is using the allocation amount for Sum of Periods as defined on the View Options in the 'Allocation Timeline' workspace. We see an amount that corresponds to the date range of the current year 24k and 320 -- therefore it seems to be using 'Sum of Periods' (for the current year) and not 'Grand Total'
