How Explore data can help
Explore Data give users the flexibility to dig deeper into the data, ask questions and make adjustments to reports without Analysts' support.
For example, you are a country manager of an e-commerce company. Your analyst has made a pivot table showing the total revenue breakdown by countries through time, but you also want to see revenues by cities.
That is a minor change, but depending on a company's workflow, it can take 1 - 2 days for the request to be completed by the analyst.
Now, you can just simply explore and make that change.
You can even perform aggregations and calculations on your numeric fields, without needing to involve your technical team. Just drag and drop your field into the editor, and click on the field to bring up a dropdown list of the available calculations.
