Calculated Custom Data vs. Calculated Columns

Calculated Views solve a key deficiency in Calculated Custom Data.

When to Use Calculated Views

  • When you want real time data to be available on a report
  • When you don’t plan to group by aggregated results
  • When you do not plan to aggregate the data beyond the initial view setup (data can only be aggregated once)


When to use Calculated Custom Data

  • When you want to group the aggregated results
  • When you want to aggregate the data more beyond the initial data setup
  • When you are not concerned about the timeliness of the data, as the results are updated only once a day



Calculated Views are always fresh because the calculation is made when the report is run or the view is applied
