How to use this template
This is a beta template, and we would love to know what you think of it! Send us an e-mail if you have any requests, problems or questions.
What's it for?
This template allows you make a template in which your audience can search, filter and explore. Pretty boring, huh? Luckily, we added a way to turn your columns into mini visualisations! For now you can make a basic bar chart, but we'll be adding more visualisation types very soon.
How to get started
- Upload your data
- Done 🙂
- Want to turn your columns into mini bar charts? Go to "Chart columns" on the right hand side and type in the column names
Tell me more about those mini visualisations Of course. Let's say you have election results for each state in America. We have a column for state name, population, Republican %, Democrat%.
Now we want to turn Republican % and Democrat% into a bar chart, so we can immediately see the vote results for each state.
- Go to "Chart columns" on the right hand side, and enable "Bar Chart Columns"
- Fill in Democrats %, Republicans %
- This should turn the two columns into a new column with the bar chart
- Give the newly made bar chart a name
Does this table work with a lot of data? It works pretty quickly, even with about 100,000 rows of data. You can optimize it by limiting the columns to search through.
Can I also use this as a searchable tool Yes! Just set the pagination amount to 0, and the pagination amount after search to something more than 0. This will make sure the table is empty on default, and will only fill up once you start searching.
Will there be more visualisation types? Yes! At the moment you can do only basic bar chart, but it will be possible to do spark lines very soon. Watch this space.
So what happens on mobile? We've made it quite flexible for you. You could choose to switch to a mobile blocks view, but if you prefer to keep a table view (with scrollbars) than that's totally fine.
