Click below to watch a short video on how to create a chart based on a dataset or filtered view
Creating a visualization atop your data is easy! From within the dataset, click the green "Visualize" tab then under Chart choose the type of chart you want to create.
Note: Each chart type requires specific data types. If your dataset does not meet these requirements, the chart type will be greyed out (like the Timeline icon in the screenshot above).
Data Selection: Within this panel, you will need to select the columns from your data to visualize
Advanced Data Selection: This is available for all column and bar charts. This section allows you to group the data within the visualization.
Data Presentation: Customize the color, annotations, and labels here!
Chart Details: This section allows you to create and edit flyouts and legends for the visualizations you create.
Click 'Apply', after you create or alter a visualization on top of a dataset, you will be presented with the options to save a view, which are - 'Save', 'Save As' and 'Revert'. Here are the differences between these options:
- 'Save' - Saves your applied changes to that particular view.
- 'Save As' - Creates a filtered view which is static instance of the underlying dataset or view, reflecting the changes applied. This view can be linked to separately. The underlying dataset or view will remain the same.
- 'Revert' - Undoes any applied changed and will take you to the saved state of the underlying view
