Insight Types

Each insight type has slightly different options and may enable you to display different types of data.

The table below shows what you can configure in each insight type:

1) Allows facts, metrics, and aggregated attributes.
2) Allows only one attribute or date.
3) Requires only one item in the Metrics section.
4) The configuration options differ for each insight type.
5) Has multiple Metrics sections.

When you switch from one insight type to another, the configuration of the insight may change. For example, when you switch from a column chart with 3 items in the Metrics section and 2 items in the View by section to a pie chart, the pie chart displays only the first item in each section. When you switch back without changing anything, all the original items are displayed again.
