Create a Compound Grid Visualization

A Compound Grid is a visualization that allows you to build complex grids that analyze different aspects of data across a common dimension. This means you can have multiple unrelated attributes and metrics in different sets of columns that are then stitched together in one grid. Each column set can appear differently as thresholds, advanced filters, and formatting can be applied to each set.

  1. Open a new or existing dossier.
  2. Click Insert Visualization .
  3. In the Gallery, click Compound Grid .
  4. Drag an attribute from the Datasets panel to the Rows area of the Editor panel.

    In Desktop 2020 you can only use attributes in rows.

  5. Drag an attribute or metric from the Datasets panel to the Columns Set area in the Editor Panel.
  6. Double-click the Column Set name to rename the set.
  7. Click Add Column Set to create another column set.
  8. To add an advanced filter, click More in the upper right corner of a visualization and choose Edit Filter.
  9. Select a column set and click Add New Qualification. See How to Manage Qualifications for an Advanced Filter for information on adding qualifications.
