Synthetic dimension functions

A synthetic dimension is created in the app from values generated from the synthetic dimension functions and not directly from fields in the data model. When values generated by a synthetic dimension function are used in a chart as a calculated dimension, this creates a synthetic dimension. Synthetic dimensions allow you to create, for example, charts with dimensions with values arising from your data, that is, dynamic dimensions.

Note: Synthetic dimensions are not affected by selections.

The following synthetic dimension functions can be used in charts.

Use the drop-down on each function to see a brief description and the syntax of each function. Click the function name in the syntax description for further details.
