Creating a visual

In CDP Data Visualization you can easily create new visual representations.

The following steps demonstrate how to create a new visual:
  1. On the main navigation bar, click VISUALS.
  2. Click NEW DASHBOARD to open a new dashboard, in Edit mode.

    If you already have an existing dashboard, click it, and then EDIT to make changes to it.

  3. In the Dashboard Designer interface, open the Visuals menu from the side menu bar, and click NEW VISUAL.
  4. The Visual Builder interface appears.
    By default, a table visual is selected. For more information on the Visual Builder, see the overview of Visual Builder.
  5. Choose a different visual type.
    In this example, the Bars visual has been selected.
  6. Populate the shelves from the Dimensions and Measures fields:
    In this example, we added:
    • state dimension on the X Axis shelf
    • population measure on the Y Axis shelf
    • year measure on the Colors shelf
    • year measure on the Filters shelf

      The Filter for year module opens automatically. Years 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010 have been selected.

  8. Add the title 'Recent US Census Results by State'.
    • Click the enter title... field and enter a name for the visual.

    • [Optional] Click the enter subtitle... field below the title of the visualization to add a brief description of the visual.

  9. At the top left corner of the Dashboard Designer, click SAVE.
