Managing tables

This reference explains how to manage the columns in a table.

Introduction

Create tables from the following column types:

  • Dimensions

  • Metrics

  • Calculated Key Performance Indicators (calculated KPIs). Calculated KPIs are also displayed in green but marked with the icon. For more information, see Creating widgets with calculated KPIs.

Find these column types in Explore on the left side of the page in the Dimensions & Metrics panel. The columns are listed below the data sources. The list of available columns is determined by the data transferred to Explore & Present. The default groups Adverity and Time contain a set of predefined columns.

Prerequisites

Before you complete the procedure in this guide, perform all of the following actions:

Adding columns to a table

To add columns to a table, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Explore element and select the Workspace you work with in Explore & Present.

  1. Click a data source to see the list of available columns.

  2. Click the column name to add it to the table.

The selected columns are displayed in the Dimensions (highlighted in blue) and Metrics (highlighted in green) panels in the main section of the page.

When you select more than one dimension for the table, both dimensions are displayed in a nested format. The parent-child structure is determined by the order of the dimensions in the Dimensions field. The first dimension is the parent and the following dimension is the child.

For example, you add the following dimensions in order:

  • Datasource

  • Campaign State

  • Campaign

The columns of the table have the following nested structure:

  • Datasource

    • Campaign State

      • Campaign
