Exclude a breakdown from the breakdown matrix

Exclude certain combinations of breakdowns by defining a breakdown exclusion matrix.

Before you begin

Role required: pa_admin, pa_power_user, or admin

About this task

Sometimes, not all breakdown combinations (including second level breakdowns) give useful information. For example, the combination [Country, Region] will give the same scores as the breakdown Country. You can eliminate these combinations in a list with breakdown matrix exclusions. These exclusions are not shown in the detailed scorecard or in the scoresheet and cannot be selected when creating widgets.
