Assigning Data

First, I will drag the widget from the “Proportion” section of the widget menu to my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize it by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read. This is what my pyramid widget looks like before I have assigned data to it.

Next, I will click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the widget and navigate to the “Properties” tab to rename my widget. I want my pyramid to display each player’s number of attempts on target, so I will call the widget “Most Attempts on Target.”

Now, I am ready to assign data to my widget. After clicking the “Assign Data” tab, I will drag the “Attempts On Target” field to the “Values” box. I want to see the data for individual players (rather than teams), so I will drag the “PlayerName” field to the “Columns” box.

My widget has been created, but given the sheer amount of information it displays, it is clear that I need to filter my data to make the widget easier to read.
