Sometimes you need to define Metrics with a subset of the data you have. For example, if you have a Metric like revenue, you’ll want to exclude all sales records where the type is “PROMOTION” or “TRIAL”.
You can now define Metrics with a subset of records of a Data Pool. When defining a Metric via the Console or API, you can create Metric Filters to include or exclude records from the Metric values. See below for an example where we define a Metric to sum up records where “AREA” equals “California”.
