Timeliness Category [within goal] displays Total Item Count



Timeliness category function, in report definitions, does not display the count of assignments in that category. The total assignment count displays instead.

For example, use the below three Timeliness categories as parameters to the Pega out-of-the-box Timeliness function in the report definition. Below is mathematical explanation for these categories:

Category: Past Deadline

The number of cases Past Deadline is equal to the number of assignments where .pxDeadlineExecute is filled.

Formula: Npd = N(.pxDeadlineExecute != null)
For example: Npd = 237

Category: Past Goal

The number of cases Past Goal is equal to the number of assignments where .pxGoalExecute is filled, but not .pxDeadlineExecute.

Formula: Npg = N(.pxGoalExecute != null) - Npd
For example: Npg = 237 - 237 = 0

Category: Within Goal

The number of cases Within Goal is equal to the number of assignments where neither .pxGoalExecute or .pxDeadlineExecute is filled.

Formula: Nwg = Ntotal - N(.pxGoalExecute != null)
For example: Nwg = 306 - 237 = 69

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a workbasket with assignments in all three categories (Within Goal, Past Goal, and Past Deadline).
  2. Open the PYAGEBYWORKQUEUE standard report .
  3. Run the report. All the categories have equal values except Past Deadline which is defined differently within the report definition.

Root Cause

In the Timeliness Category [within goal] function column, the Summarize field used Count instead of SUM.


As a local-change, in the Summarize field, change the Count function to SUM.
