Pivot Tables

Pivot tables expand capabilities of regular (flat) tables by allowing you to reorganize and summarize selected data beyond the typical row-column relationship.

A pivot table can have up to 20 attribute rows and 20 attribute columns to refine data in your insight. The data is then merged according to the attribute order in the Rows/Columns sections.

Pivot tables have the following sections:

  • Measures
  • Rows
  • Columns
  • Configuration

In pivot tables, you can also:

  • Display the values as a percentage.

  • Compare your data to the previous period or the same period of the previous year.

    For details, see Time over Time Comparison .

  • Group data when sorted by the first item in the Rows section.

Pivot tables automatically adjust the width of the visible columns according to the cell content. The size is calculated according to the content in the header of the column that represents the lowest level of the grouped attributes.

For information about common characteristics and settings of all insights, see Insight Types .

Table Totals

You can aggregate data in a table using the following functions:

  • Sum
  • Max
  • Min
  • Avg
  • Median

Steps:

  1. Create a pivot table.

    To add table totals, the table must include at least one item in the Measures section and one item in the Rows section.
