    if i choose a step for DateTimeGroupDescription that is month, day etc. The year is not shown in the result.
    It should show year has well.

    We would like to be able to group by year, quarter, month etc all together in one group description.

    The result would be year subdivided in quarter subdivided in month etc... With options to see what I want. Lets say i want to see first level year and second level month, etc.

    This is very important has our customer requirer this feature.

    With our latest release we have introduced entire new UI to set DateTime Step via RadPivotFieldList. You can find more information about the change in our Backwards Compatibility article.With these changes you are able to select different steps in the UI and use them simultaneously. In your case you can use code similar to:
        <pivot:DateTimeGroupDescription PropertyName="Date" Step="Year" />
        <pivot:DateTimeGroupDescription PropertyName="Date" Step="Quarter"/>
        <pivot:DateTimeGroupDescription PropertyName="Date" Step="Month" />

    I also suggest you to take a look at our article describing how to use DateTimeGroupDescription. You can download a runnable project with modified FieldTree (read the article in order to find out how to modify RadPivotFieldList's FieldTree) from our SDK Examples.

    Using three different steps simultaneously will lead to a result similar to the one you have sent in your last mail, but if you want to use only one group description, you will have to create custom group description. You can download a sample project how to implement it from our SDK Examples.

    Hopefully this helps. Feel free to contact us if you have any other problems or concerns.
