Using Displayname to Change Grouping Name Displayed

Question

How can I change the name of a grouping? I have a grouping on a task report where I have referenced the Portfolio name and the name displaying on the grouping is Project: Name: Test Portfolio and does not look very appealing and is confusing to users as to if they are seeing the project name or portfolio name.

Answer

To change the name of the grouping you will need to go to the grouping tab on the report and go into text mode. Once in text mode you will see your grouping. Example below

 

group.0.linkedname=project

group.0.namekey=view.relatedcolumn

group.0.namekeyargkey.0=project

group.0.namekeyargkey.1=name

group.0.valuefield=project:portfolio:name

group.0.valueformat=string

textmode=true

 

You will need to add a line to the group for group.0.displayname=(what you would like to display) ie. group.0.displayname=Portfolio.

If you have multiple groupings you will need to determine which one you want to change the name for and add the group number instead of 0.
