Assigning Data

First, I need to drag the tree map widget from the “Relationship” section of the widget menu onto 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 tree map 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 click the “Assign Data” tab.

I would like my widget to display the gold and silver medals earned by each country, so I will drag the “Gold” and “Silver” fields to the “Values” box and the “Country” field to the “Columns” box.

My tree map has now been created, but it is a bit difficult to read due to the sheer amount of data it displays. Thus, I am going to filter my data to make my widget more manageable.
