Incorporating Numerical Variables into Workspaces

A numerical variable has no impact on what users see in a workspace until it is incorporated into metric definitions to affect how report values are computed.


Adding variables to MAQL syntax

In the following example, the Var_Commission numerical variable represents each user’s personal commission rate, which is multiplied by the total amount won. When this metric is inserted into a report that filters for the accounts each user helped to close, this metric allows the user to keep tabs on her commissions.
