Data Views

Data views allow you to create summarized snapshots from a table, making it easy to present meaningful insights.

Create a Data View

1. Add a new data view

  • To add a data view from a table, click the Pivot view button on the top right of any table, and a data view will be added below.
  • Alternatively, you can manually create a data view by typing /data on a new line and selecting Data View. Use the Source menu to connect it to any table.

2. Build your data view by adding columns

  • Use the + button to add columns of data that you want to showcase.
  • Drag the columns to rearrange their order or remove them as needed.
  • The order of your columns shapes the data view and determines how repeated values are nested together.
