Project Converter FAQ
Known Conversion Issues
Minute granularity with breakdowns or in columns
When minute granularity has breakdowns applied to it or if minute granularity is present in columns, the project cannot be converted to Analysis Workspace. A workaround is to remove the breakdown on minute granularity and remove it from columns, then convert the project. You can then apply breakdowns on minute granularity in Analysis Workspace.
Internal calculated metric used together with a column segment
If you are using an internal calculated metric together with a column segment, the project cannot be converted to Analysis Workspace. To work around this issue, remove the internal calculated metrics from the project before conversion, then re-add them in Analysis Workspace.
