Exploring data with visualizations

When you make a selection, all associated visualizations are updated immediately to reflect the selection. You confirm the selection by clicking , or by clicking anywhere on the sheet outside the visualization, including in another visualization, (in which case you generate a new selection).

You cancel a selection by clicking . You can also press Esc to undo.
By default, new selections in a visualization are added to the previous ones. You deselect an item by clicking it. On a computer, you can hold down Ctrl while you make a selection, to automatically clear previous selections in a visualization, and only keep the new selection.
