Plot a Single Value Visualization

Visualizations can be created via the PAGE ELEMENTS section of your workbook's editor panel or directly from an existing data element

Visualized data will not display on the page canvas until all required plot fields are defined.

Add columns to open fields using either the field's + menu or dragging and dropping the column.

Required Fields

  • VALUE (1+)
    Columns added to the VALUE field are aggregated by default. Aggregation type (e.g. Sum vs Count) is dependent on the original column’s value type (e.g. text, number, date, etc).

Optional Fields

  • Comparison (1)

Marks

  • Color
  • Tooltip
