Highly repeatable tasks - Functions?

    To do this with the native functions in Datameer, this would require a separate sheet for each grouping and then union the resulting groups together. 

    It'd also be possible to create a custom function in Datameer using the SDK to build this type of logic in Java and input the column names and groupings all in a single step. This may be a worthwhile investment if this is a regular occurrence. More information about user-defined functions through the SDK is available here: Building Custom Functions

    Hi Joel,

    Thanks for the reply!

    Can we build a custom function (through Java) that can be leveraged in Datameer? i.e. if I build it once in Java, the others who don't use Java, can leverage the function through the regular Datameer UI?

    Hi Venkata,

    That is correct.  Once developed, any user can use the function in their workbooks.
