In Analysis Workspace, a Freeform Table is the foundation for interactive data analysis. You can drag and drop a combination of components into rows and columns to create a custom table for your analysis. As each component is dropped, the table will update immediately so you can do quickly analyze and dig deeper.
The quickest way to build a table is to drop components directly into a blank project, panel or freeform table. A freeform table will automatically be built for you in a recommended format. Watch the tutorial.
Freeform table builder
If you prefer to add several components to your table first, then render the data, you can enable Freeform Table Builder. With the builder enabled, you can drag & drop in many dimensions, breakdowns, metrics and filters to build tables that answer more complex questions. Data will not update on-the-fly, it will update once you click Build.
You can interact with and customize a freeform table in a variety of ways:
You can fit more rows into a single screen by adjusting the project’s view density.
Each dimension row can show up to 400 rows, before pagination occurs. Click the number next to “Rows” to show more rows on a page. Navigate to a different page using the page arrow in the header.
Rows can be broken down by additional components. To breakdown many rows at once, simply select multiple rows and then drag the next component on top of the selected rows. Learn more about breakdowns.
Rows can be filtered to show a reduced set of items. Additional settings are available under Row settings.
Components can be stacked within columns to create filtered metrics, cross-tab analysis and more.
