Boolean Data Elements for Indicators

Dear Devs,

I am configuring some indicators and ideally I would like to be able to do so from boolean data elements.
For e.g. there would be a data element ‘Report handed in on time’ that could be “Yes” or “No” in data entry. Then when it comes to an indicator, there is the need to calculate an indicator “Percentage reports handed in on time”. This would calculate by Num: “Number reports handed in on time” (i.e. Number “Yes”) Den: “Total number of reports handed in” (i.e. Yes and No; or Total responses). Is there a way of being able to do this in aggregate v2.22 (or higher) that calculates directly from the data element; rather than having to make assumption about OU groups?

If there is not - could it please be strongly considered for future versions?

Many thanks,
