When there are more than one time dimensions in the dataset, the time aggregation will be problematic and some aggregated variables present to users are in-corrected.We want to discourage user the do the time aggregation when the datasets have more than one time dimensions. In the future, we will add a collection type to perform this function. Sorry about the inconvenience.
