This article describes how to add a column to a table gauge. Table gauges are built from layers. Each layer represents a column in the gauge. For more information on using gauge layers, please refer to the Calculated Metrics article.
If you'd like to see how layers affect a table gauge or get inspiration for a new table gauge, open an existing gauge. Select GAUGES from the top menu bar, then select Table from the Type menu in the left sidebar. Click on a gauge in the list to open it in the Gauge Builder. Click through the layers and take note of the measures, dimensions, and filters on each.
Add a Column to a Table Gauge
To add a column:
- Open the desired table gauge in the Gauge Builder. You can either:
- Open the gauge from a dashboard, or
- Select GAUGES from the top menu bar, then select the desired gauge.
- Click the plus sign.
- Select New Layer.
- Select one of the following options:
- Clone Current Layer: Copies the currently-selected layer tab, including measures, dimensions, and filters.
- Blank (Same Dataset): Creates a blank table gauge that pulls data from the same dataset as the currently-selected layer tab. Select this option if you would like to use the same set of fields for your measures, dimensions, and filters.
- Blank (New Dataset): Creates a blank table gauge and allows you to pull data from a different dataset. Select this option if you would like to use a different set of fields for your measures, dimensions, and filters.
- Add the desired measures, dimensions, and filters to the layer.
- Click Save. The table gauge updates to include data from the new layer.
