Fields and Metrics in Widget editor


Distinguishing Between Fields Options and Metrics/Breakdowns Functionalities

Fields Options: This feature is designed to enhance data presentation within a table format. By enabling you to add or customize columns, Fields options allow for personalized table views, improving data organization and analysis within tables.

Metrics and Breakdowns: These functionalities extend beyond mere tabular data presentation. They empower users to:

  • Visualize complex data sets using charts and pivot tables for a more dynamic and intuitive display.

  • Identify trends, patterns, and relationships within data, aiding in comprehensive analysis.

  • Create widgets that integrate multiple data sources, offering enhanced versatility in the analytics workflow.

  • Categorize and analyze data with greater specificity, allowing for more detailed and granular insights.

  • While Fields options focus on customizing table views, Metrics and Breakdowns provide a wider array of tools for advanced visualization and deeper data analysis, supporting more informed decision-making.


Leverage Metrics and Breakdowns to transform complex data into visually compelling and easily interpretable insights, facilitating better strategic planning and decision-making.
