You create visualizations from predefined charts, fields, or custom objects. Once added to your sheet, you can edit and refine your visualizations.
Your visualization design is guided by the data in your fields and the unlimited potential for exploring associations and correlations through measures and dimensions.

After creating a visualization, you may want to make adjustments to improve how it conveys information to users. For example, you can change the data used, or adjust the appearance of the visualization. You can add more dimensions or measures for further depth of information or remove some to improve clarity.
