Mode's Visual Explorer

We are excited to announce three new features in Visual Explorer: Grand Totals, sorting by field, and adjusting column widths. These new updates will help you explore your data and get insights faster in Visual Explorer.

What is Visual Explorer?

Visual Explorer is our new flexible visualization system that helps you quickly create and iterate through data-heavy visualizations. 

Inspired by the Grammar of Graphics, our responsive system lets you pivot and facet large data sets with ease, and create visualizations like Combination Charts, Grouped Bars, Dual Axes with Multiple Measures, and more. 

Grand Totals - Get an aggregated summary of your data

We've rolled out Grand Totals (referenced at the bottom of our FAQs) to help you get a quick and easy view of an aggregated summary of your data. You can now toggle Grand Totals on and off in any visualization you create in Visual Explorer. Simply click on the sigma sign (Σ) in the Mode toolbar and select either “Show column grand total” or “Show row grand total” to see Grand Totals.

Learn more about how to display Grand Totals in your chartscroll to the bottom of our FAQs.

Sorting by field - Identify insights with more sorting controls and options

Sorting by field is now available in Visual Explorer. This lets you have more granular control over sorting in reports—even if a field isn’t directly in the visualization—to identify insights and highlight trends for stakeholders.

Column widths - Adjust column widths for a better user experience

You can now manually adjust column widths (referenced at the bottom of this Help site section) in your visualizations. This allows you to have more precise controls to better display your insights across platforms.
