Merge single-groups
« on: November 24, 2019, 10:43:56 pm »
Hi,

The groupby feature works really well when I group by a column that has more than 1 distinct value. It shows  the grand total cells for each grouping, and they are meaningful.
However, when there is only one distinct value, I want it to NOT show an ADDITIONAL grand-total row, since it is a duplicate of the previous grouping level.
Is there a way to "merge" duplicate grand total rows so that it only shows the grid doesn't output duplicate rows?

Thanks

It makes sense, however not available currently, so moving it to feature request board.

How long does it take / what is the process for a feature request to be come reality? (Assuming that it is planned)

Thanks for the quick response. I was looking into implementing it using pq_hidden, but then I realised that summary rows are not included in datamodel.data.

Can you post the patch here so I can modify my version of the library? (since we have an "Ultimate" subscription)

Can you please post the diff for this feature so that I can update my copy of the code and don't have to wait for the next release? I sounded like it was a quick fix.
