Number Chart


What it is

The Number Chart is a single aggregate value with no dimensions. For example, in the image above, the value is the average of an entire column named Amount. You can aggregate Number charts by Avg, Min, Max, Sum, Count Unique (for string or smallint data types), or Custom (where you can apply any SQL compatible custom function; see Custom Measures).

When to use it

Use a number chart when you want a compact display of one metric and are not interested in breaking out that metric by time, category, or some other dimension. You can add multiple number charts to a dashboard to concurrently view several aggregate calculations. For example, viewing the Max, Min, Avg, and Sum of a column all at once.

How to set it up

Since the Number Chart has no dimension, specify the column to be aggregated, and choose the aggregation type.
