Hi Anshuli,

Some of the differences are -

  • The most significant difference is that sets are dynamic while groups are not. When your data changes the set will update with it while this is not an option with groups.
  • Sets offer greater flexibility as you can link them to a condition.
  • Sets appear in a separate window below your Measures and subsequently, are easier to locate and don’t create clutter.
  • You can group only within one dimension while with sets you can group across multiple dimensions.

Hope it helps.
