Filtering 1: by Year

When working with a very large set of data, it is necessary to quickly access and examine a specific subset of information. Arcadia Instant gives you the ability to filter information on all fields of the dataset. This example shows how to use such a filter to limit the result set and visualization to one year.

Tip. This example uses the visual previously created in Bar Visuals. Clone it, and make the changes to the duplicate visual.

To use this visual to see the bar chart for a specific year, such as 2010, follow these steps.

  1. Set the filter value for year to 2010:

    • On the Filter shelf of the visual, click the icon to the right of the field.

    • In the Filter Properties menu, click Select values.

      selecting values
    • In the Filter for year modal window, select 2010, then click Apply.

  2. Click Refresh Visual.
  3. Note how the bar visual for year 2010 changed compared to the previous display, which was averaged over 1900 - 2010 span.

  4. Rename the visual.
  5. At the top left corner of the Visual Designer, click Save.
