How do I add a pivot table?

This article explains how to edit the field functions in an EPM Live Analytics report.   The steps are applicable whether you are building a new report or updating an existing report.

The Add Pivot button allows you to generate analytical data grids and essentially adds extra columns to the right side of the report. These extra columns are based on the logical grouping function that you can define in your pivot.  Example: Pivoting the budget column with a Group (Year) function will display each year's total for as many years as exist in your dataset.
