Is there anything on the roadmap that will allow us to join different objects for reporting without writing rules to merge data in MDA tables?  (which is a heavy process for a simple report).

Hi Matthew, Dataspaces might be something you need. Could you please give us your complete use case. I can point you to an existing solution (MDA Joins ?) or a roadmap item, if I understand your usecase well.

Thanks

We're well aware of using dataspaces and MDA joins but I think Bionic Reports would be AMAZING. Hopefully, it's something that can be done in the future!! :D

Hi Faust,

By "Bionic reports" do you mean dynamically fetching data from various objects using bionic rules infra and being able to report on top of the resultant dataset ? Thats definitely on the roadmap. I will announce the ETA as we get clarity on it.

Thanks

Hi - This is listed as 'implemented,' but i don't see this yet. I may have missed an update - do we now have the ability to pull data from multiple sources into the same report?

Hi Elizabeth,

This feature is NOT implemented yet. Its on our roadmap. The "implemented" status of the idea is a mistake. Sorry for the inconvenience. I worked with our community manager and got it changed.

Thanks

Here is another use case:

We have a field that is automatically updated when a contract closes "Contract Expiration Date", which is normally 3 years after the close date of the opportunity.  Occasionally, the sales team will create opportunities for early renewal, which have a close date before (sometimes up to a year before) the existing Contract Expiration Date.  I want to show a report off all opportunities where the opp close date is less than the contract expiration date.
