Moving Average operator behavior / settings
Hi, I have come over unexpected behavior of Moving Average operator from series extension.
By default, it creates a new attribute which is the result of moving average (or another chosen function) calculation. With settings like this, for example:
it creates new attribute with name 'average(sum7)'.
Fact is, that this default name prevents me from chaining this operator multiple times, for example if I needed to calculate both 7-days and 30-days moving average, this process won't work:
because second Moving Average 30 tries to create a new attribute with the exactly same name as the first one (Moving Average 7) already has created.
I have either to multiply initial attribute which I am aggregating in order to get its copy under another name, or rename a new one after first Moving Average. Not critical, but still one excessive step in the process.
Is there anything that prevents having a setting that would allow us to choose the default name of an attribute created, and not having it named in a default way that cannot be changed?
