Analytical Designer allows you to visualize your data using an array of analytical tools and visualization types.
In Analytical Designer, you can:
1 Analyze facts and attributes that represent qualitative data.
2 Analyze metrics that represent quantitative data.
3 Create a new metric without having to switch to the Metrics tab. For details, see
4 Filter and search through your metrics, facts and attributes.
1-4 are part of the so-called Data Catalog. Data Catalog shows metrics, facts and attributes that are applicable to your visualization in a given context. These items can be hidden if they are not compatible with your current visualization’s configuration.
To change this behaviour for advanced users, see Show Hidden Items.
5 Switch among multiple types of visualizations. For details, see Visualization Types.
6 Drag data from these zones back to Data Catalog to remove them from your visualization.
7 Configure your visualization: change colors, modify axes, legends, and canvas. For details, see
Configure Visualization Properties.
8 Drag any attribute to the bar to filter your data.
9 Navigate between steps or clear your visualization.
10 Use suggestions that help you modify your visualization based on common usage patterns.
11 Save your visualization.
