Creating Visualizations

Data visualization helps to tell stories by curating data into a form easier to understand, highlighting the trends and outliers. A good visualization tells a story, removing the noise from data and highlighting useful information. Tabulate allows you to choose from several different visualizations to select one that best illustrates the data.

Adding a Visualization

To select the Visualization required, make a selection of grid of cells in the spreadsheet and select the appropriate visualization from the ribbon or right click and choose the visual item in the context menu.

  • When adding a visual via the context menu, you can directly control which visual pane (1-3) will house the new visualization.
  • When adding the visual via the ribbon, the visual is always added into the next available pane.

The list of visualizations and their related formatting options are the same as those found in Discover. For a comprehensive review of visuals and how to build them see the following topics:

Change Visualization

To change a Visualization, right-click on the current Visualization and select the required Visualization type from the cascading menus.
