Selective suppress zero function based on a specific table attribute

The user should be able to select a specific table attribute to be considered in zero suppression. Today the zero rows are suppressed only if all the values of the row are equal to zero. Tomorrow we'd like to allow the user to select a specific table attribute that triggers the row suppression: if the value of this attribute is zero, regardless the value of other attributes in the same row, the system hides the row.

As shown in attached picture, the user should be allowed to suppress the FINANCE row by setting as suppress zero parameter the attribute of the second column (Headcount column, highlighted in red).

    This idea may be considered for the Planning Analytics Workspace cube viewer. However, this is not zero suppression. It's already possible to use the MDX Filter function to filter members in a hierarchy based on cube values. It's very common to manually implement set MDX with the Filter function in Planning Analytics solutions.

    We can plan feature work in the Workspace cube viewer that will make it easier to build these sort of data filtered views.
