Add a Column to a Table Gauge

Overview

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.

  3. Select New Layer.
  4. 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.
  5. Add the desired measures, dimensions, and filters to the layer.
  6. Click Save. The table gauge updates to include data from the new layer.
