Building Charts in Holistics
Go to Query Editor by clicking on Analyze in the navbar:
Once you enter the query editor, you can type any quick SQL query and click Run to pull up the dataset you require.
In this example, we'll use:
select * from ecommerce.orders
This will return your chosen data table to you.
You're now ready to build some visualizations!
Select the visualization type from the chart dropdown menu at the bottom:
Aggregations/Transformations on Charts
For Date/Time fields, you can transform these directly to the groupings you want, such as by Hour, Day, Week, Month, Quarter or Year.
In tab Settings, under section X Axis, click on the date-typed column you want to transform and pick one in the dropdown:
With the aggregation feature, you can quickly apply functions to perform calculations on your data series, to display on your charts.
- Count (Distinct)
- Sample Std. Dev.
- Sample Variance
- Population Variance
In tab Settings, under section Y-axis, click the series you want to aggregate pick one in the dropdown:
Filtering on Charts
This feature allows you to easily customize charts to get the specific results, for easier data exploration.
In this example, the chart's filter has been set to display data values that match the condition where Status equals to Waiting Payment, and the date values of the column Created At fall between 2016-03-01 and 2016-07-01:
In tab Settings, under section FILTERS, click Add Filter and select the column value you want to specify:
