I know this topic has been covered few times but I wanted to start the conversation again. Is there any chance we can expect it to happen? I mean support min/max for date types in functions, custom measures, and table calculations.

Creating MIN/MAX values in LookML for each possible timestamp is just “evil” not to mention we can’t do that in System Activity.


I would also like to know why this can’t / won’t / hasn’t been implemented yet. Are there some restrictions we are not aware of?

Seconding this! Would love this for system activity, but also so we can avoid having users need to put in a ticket every time they need to do a min/max on a timestamp.

System activity should be open to extend as well.
