Working with tabular views
Analytics Plus provides various options to sort, filter, format, and freeze the columns in a tabular view. In this document, we will discuss these options in detail.
Sorting a tabular view
By default, Analytics Plus sorts the data in ascending order based on the data columns in the Group by block shelf. You can also sort the data columns per your requirements.
Follow the steps below to sort a tabular view,
Open the required tabular view in View mode.
Right-click the required column and click Sort. You can also click the Sort option from the toolbar. The following options are available:
Sort Ascending: This option allows you to sort the column's data in ascending order.
Sort Descending: This option allows you to sort the column's data in descending order.
Remove Sorting: Use this option to remove the applied sorting function.
You can also sort the data columns easily, by clicking the arrow icon that appears on mouse over the column header. A down arrow indicates that the column is sorted in ascending order, while an up arrow implies that the column is sorted in descending order.
The sort option in tabular view is similar to the sort option present in tables. Click here to learn more about sorting.
Applying dynamic filters
Analytics Plus allows you to dynamically filter the tabular view to display the required data. Follow the steps below to do this.
Open the required tabular view, and click the Filter button in the toolbar. The filter pane is displayed with the filter options for each column. These options will vary based on the data type of the column.
Choose the required filter condition from the dropdown, provide the filter value and click Apply.
You can also apply filters to multiple columns.
On adding the required filters, click the Save (New*) button.
To edit or delete the existing filters,
Click the Filter drop-down, navigate to the required filter, and click the Edit or Delete icon.
Analytics Plus also allows you to include or exclude specific values from a tabular view. To do this, right-click on the required data cell, and click the Filter including this value or the Filter excluding this value option to display data as required.
Note: The dynamic filters are not visible to the shared users.
Freezing a column
Analytics Plus allows you to pin columns, i.e., ensure the columns are visible when you move horizontally across the report. These pinned columns are displayed at the beginning of the tabular view, one after the other.
To freeze a column, select the required column and click More > Freeze Column from the toolbar. You can also right-click the column and select the Freeze Column option.
To unfreeze the column, click the Unfreeze (pin) icon on the top right corner of the column header.
