We discuss:

  • Multi-fact models:  How to add an additional fact table into your model.
    • Join on common dimensions
    • Additional dimensions that are specific to only one fact
    • How to accommodate unrelated dimensions on your measures
  • Query Data Sets – what are they, why would you need them, and how do you use them?
  • The Composer – easily do some basic data manipulations without writing your own code
  • Uncommon measure types, like standard deviations and semi-additive measures
  • And a couple tips about hierarchies, like defining special sorts and when you might want to hide something in your model.
