Your context contains information about the fields available in the data model, as well as a global search that will search all of the fields in the data model.
The field metadata contains updated information about each field, including distinct value counts and an indicator bar to show the relative percentage of remaining values on selection. In other words, if you have no selections made, then all of these indicators will be white because all of the values in all of the fields are available. See the image below for what happens when you start to filter down the data:
You can also filter charts by brushing (clicking and dragging) across the X- or Y-axis of any chart.
The Global Search will search all values in the current dataset. Clicking any of these values will filter to those values in your context filters.
You can also search individual fields with aggregation searches, such as when you're trying to filter one field based on a sum or count of another field. For more advanced filtering, check out Lenses
In this example, we find the 4 people who have received > 35 medals.
- The search bar is powerful, but if you have a lot of data it can take a little while to return values, so be patient! It’s worth the wait.
- You can drag and drop pinned filters to reorder them
