Multi Select Option for PAW

The current dimension element selector only allow users to select a single element from a dimension but no option to select multiple elements and see aggregated data on the fly. The MDX based calculation(Summerized) option is not as intuitive as a user would like to see. Further this become difficult to implement if user is interacting with a chart.

    Why is this maked as will not implement when Paul Glennon demoed this exact capability yesterday during the online conference?

    Essentially the feature is now there and available! (which is great). It is just that it is available via the "add calculation" feature and so needs to be initiated on row of column set and then dragged to the context. All this ER represents is an easer and more intuitive way to achieve the same result. Now that the capability exists it would seem the very definition of a quick win to allow an alternative way to create an aggregate calculation via multi-select of elements on context dimensions and ceate the calculated member automatically in the background.

    At this point there is no intention to implement this feature. Adhoc aggregation capabilities have been implemented using the calculation feature.
