Capture multi value enumerations and report on them ?

I have a requirement to allow users to enter multi-value enumerations but I have not found a good way to capture them and allow for them to be used in reports without massaging.

Currently I have a standard enumeration, and have added a string type attribute and associated the editor presentation binding to a multi-select list with the corresponding enumeration.

Can I do any better than that? That really means the built-in dashboards inside RTC can't deal with that field and I can only get to it via external reporting or custom BIRT reports that split on the comma and do the literal to value lookups for me. If that's what I got I will go down that route, but I wanted to see if there is not a better way that I missed.

You can use the Enumeration dataset - notice you need to pass it a project area as parameter for it to work (or you will get no results) use for instance '{Current Project Area}'

Hi,
I try to configure an multi value attribute and I do not understand the way to use en enumeration and where to define the enumeration list ?
What do you mean by pass a project area as parameter ?
Thanks

Hey

You are trying to just add a field ? not anything about reports ?

There is something called Enumerations in Process Configuration under Configuration Data->Work Items->Enumerations

Add you options here - then make a string field to link it to:
