Callouts are windows that you add to a workspace to bring attention to a particular dimension element by creating a new visualization with a virtual selection of that element.
Data Workbench is delivered with a standard set of callout types. Because your implementation can be fully customized, the available callout types that appear in your implementation may differ from what is documented in this guide.
By default, Data Workbench provides the following callouts:
Callouts do not function as selections (that is, they do not affect other visualizations within the workspace) unless you make a selection within the callout.
You can add or edit callout definitions by configuring the callout files stored in the profile name\Context\Callout folder of the Server installation folder. See Configuring Callouts.
Right-click the element for which you want to create a callout, then click Add Callout > Annotation > Image or Add Callout > Annotation > Text. A blank window displays with a visible connection to that element.
To add callouts to Graph visualizations, you need to right-click at the bottom of the visualization (the base axis) to open a menu.
Depending on your selection, complete the appropriate step:
Right-click the element for which you want to create a callout and click Add Callout > < callout type>.
The following example shows a Blank Table callout.
To select a dimension, right-click None and click Change Dimension > < dimension name>.
If you change the dimension within a visualization that has a callout, the callout changes from being connected to the element of the original dimension to being connected to the entire visualization.
Right-click the element for which you want to create the callout and click Add Callout > Confidence Legend.
If desired, change the Metric or Formula field.
For expression syntax rules, see Query Language Syntax. See Confidence Legends.
Right-click the element for which you want to create the callout and click Add Callout > Metric Legend.
If desired, add metrics to or remove metrics from the metric legend.
See Metric Legends.
