Assigning Data

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

Next, I will click the “Options” button, navigate to the “Properties” tab, and change the name of my widget. I want my widget to show the most penalty goals scored by players in the World Cup, so I will call the spline widget “Most Penalties Scored by Player.”

Finally, I will click the “Assign Data” tab. I want my widget to display the number of penalty goals that were scored in the World Cup, so I need to drag the “Penalties Scored” field to the “Values” box.

I want to see the data for individual players (not teams), so I need to drag the “PlayerName” field to the “Columns” box.

My widget has now been created, but given the sheer amount of information it displays, I would like to filter my data to make the widget easier to read
