  • 1. Matrix doesn't support multi-dimensional matrix visuals at present. If the rows or columns have sub-categories, Matrix will not work. Multi-dimension support is planned in a future release.

  • 2. Matrix downloads your pivoted data as an MS Excel file but does not retain the visual formatting (bold, underline, etc.).
