Odd comparative statistics template function

Reported by: c.r.roast@… Owned by: smartp@…
Priority: minor Milestone: v1.2.0
Component: Raptor MUA Version:
Keywords: post-processor behaviour Cc:


On the comparative statistics template function the default post processor is "sort x axis alphabetically". This is very confusing since the x-axis of the resulting graph still has dates on it (and it does not sort/re-sort the x-axis key). After removing the post processor the graph is unchanged - thus suggesting that the post processor is not having any effect.

Sorry, this is not major but definitely minor!

Yes, this would have zero effect on a date vs number graph. We'll remove it from the default install of Raptor.

Not sure what you mean remove it from the default install of Raptor?

I don't know either!

As it stands it is obvious that the sorting is not working but is it not obvious how to interpret it not working - now I know it is clever sort that does not sort dates alphabetically. However, that's not a good example to lead the user into effectively using the tool.

Why note give the install an example where the sorting of the x axis works.

Oh yes, that's what I meant - the statistical-units-system.xml file has the pre-configured graph with x-axis sort included even though it will never do anything. So what I meant was - we should remove that post-processor from that graph in the file we ship to reduce potential confusion.
