Most Widgets have configuration fields that are used to generate separate shapes. These fields are used to group numerical fields together and generate a single shape for each context combination.
- Chart : the chart column category (x position) of each point ; the creation of each trend series
- TreeMap : the creation of each rectangle
There is no particular grouping function.
Only “Value of” is available.
It creates a group for each distinct value of the selected field.
For string, number and boolean fields
There is no particular configuration for the following types of fields :
When they are added to a category configuration, they group the query without any formatting : each separate value creates a separate group.
For date fields
Date fields can be formatted to create different groups :
- Year (default when adding a field)
- Quarter Year
- Month Year
- Day Of Week
- Day Of Year
- Date Time : the full datetime detail (no formatting happens, each different value is a different category)
