Brushing a chart and data table

Yoav Chen shared this idea 2 months ago
Not Planned

Hi,

When brushing a chart i thought the data table changes accordingly to reflect the brushing, but i see now that the data table always show all the data regardless of the brushing.

Is there a way to tie the brushing to the data table (in the same report)?

thanks,

Yoav

Hi Yoav,

I hope all is well,

To my knowledge the Brushing only applies to the chart itself and not the data/table linked to this, therefor resulting in this not changing when brushing; Keep & Exclude. As our wiki states:

79d57c8c36170cad283de8409e1fdfd4

With this I will double check with our team as this could potentially be a case of raising this as an "Idea"

Hi Yoav,

I hope all is well,

I have since discussed this with my support team and they have confirmed that this is indeed unique to charts only, although this could be a very good suggestion for an "Idea" - with this I have gone ahead and converted this to an "Idea" I hope this is ok. I will await your feedback.

NOTE: This only applies to Report Level, we do have the option of linking at the dashboard level with multiple reports, we can see this by visiting this url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koFm2Rv0rnw

Hi Yoav,


Thanks for your suggestion on this.

Unfortunately at this point in time, there are no plans to support brushing on tables. Tables are built entirely different from charts, so there are possibly other ways around this, such as filters/drill-throughs, but no brushing.


Sorry for the bad news, if anything changes we will update you.

Hi David,

I think you misunderstood the request.

I'm not asking to brush the table. I'm asking that the report table view will reflect the chart brushing (of the same report).

Currently, when i brush a chart and switch to the table view, i see all the data and not just the brushing data.


Thanks,

Yoav

adding to last comments,

I still don't understand why this is an enhancement request and not a bug.

If i'm brushing a chart, why wouldn't i want to see the brushed data? what's the point of brushing if i can only see it graphically and not the data behind it.

Thanks,

Hi Yoav,


Essentially it was designed in a way for it only to be visible on charts, as it was done with an end consumer in mind, who won't necessarily have the understanding of the data behind the scenes.

Because it was designed this way, it's working as expected, where as a defect would stand if we were expecting it to work differently.

Keeping in mind, the table data is what is used to create the chart, and brushing on the chart simply filters the results further. So the underlying data should still be correct, it's just viewed differently on the chart. Hope this makes sense.


Apologies again for any confusion caused. If there are any changes on this functionality in the future, I'll be sure to post here.


Regards,

David
