Widget Editor

Once a data set is selected, the widget editor is automatically displayed. This view helps you work with the data to get the most desired view; you can also select the most suitable visualization for it, making it as easily to digest as possible. There are three main panes in the Widget Editor:

  • The left pane, where you will find the list of available fields in the selected data set. The following actions are supported over the data table:

    • Hide All or Show All fields, which allow to fast track visibility changes in all the fields at the same time.

    • Transposing of data table. Switches columns for rows. Only the first 50 rows are transposed.

    • Adding calculated or hierarchical fields with the + button near Fields on the top left corner.

  • The center pane, which has two sub-sections:

    • The upper section, where you can preview the final result.

    • The lower section, where you will find the Pivot Table editor. This tool is meant to help you slice-and-dice data according to your needs.

  • The right pane, which has six sub-sections:

    • Visualizations, where you can choose your desired visualization.

    • Visualization Settings, where you can configure the settings for the visualization you have selected.

    • Dashboard Filter Connections, which allows you to centrally configure the binding between a dashboard filter and your widget.

    • Link to Dashboard/URL, where you can add links to a different dashboard or a URL.

    • Parameters, which bind a dashboard filter to a particular parameter of the widget dataset.

    • General, from where you can change the general settings for your widget.

It is possible to display the visualization name by hovering over visualization thumbnails.

If a visualization option is not suitable for your data, you will see a faded visualization icon.

After you’re done building the widget and selecting the appropriate visualizations, click the Done button on the top left corner to return to the dashboard editor. In the Dashboard editor, you can control the layout, size and location of widgets by simply dragging widgets and their borders.
