Using Data Visualization

How to:

Data visualization, or peer graphics, enable you to visually compare the values of numeric columns. When you select the visualization option, bars that reflect the value of the data display in a column to the right of the data. Data visualization bars do not represent true proportions. They are algorithmically scaled to be relative to the other values in the column to make comparisons of similar values simple.

Data visualization bars update dynamically when you add a filter to the report. You can toggle between visualization of filtered data or total data.

The following report shows the Quantity field with visualization applied.
