Data Selections Overview
Keshif helps you explore and understand your data by enabling your interactive data dialogue. Selecting different parts of your data is one of the most useful interactions, revealing new trends, outliers, and insights.
Data selections are easy, rich, and effective in Keshif. Unlike other analytics tools, you don't need to create and maintain filters separate from your dashboards. Keshif keeps everything fully synchronized, so you will not miss a trend or get confused by out-of-sync dashboards.
Let's look at three key selections in Keshif.
1) Rapid Highlighting
With rapid highlighting, Keshif follows your cursor, instantly selects the data under the cursor, and reveals trends of selected data across the dashboard with a bright orange color.
You can get quick answers to your data-questions by a mouse move, and discover unexpected trends as you effortlessly explore different parts of your data.
You can also highlight an individual record by mouse-over. This action also reveals where the selected record fits among all the other charts in the dashboards.
You can filter your data to zoom into it and explore further.
With a single mouse click, you can easily filter on any category, numeric range, time range, or even region. You won't get lost as you explore deeper, since the top panel shows all your selections.
3) Side-by-Side Comparison
You can compare different record groups in Keshif with just a single click.
After you highlight your data, a lock icon appears. When clicked, Keshif locks this selection with a new color.
You can then compare it by moving the mouse to other parts of data with instant highlighting, or even compare multiple locked selections side-by-side.
