Adding custom insights to your analysis

If you don't want to use any of the suggested insights, you can create your own custom insight. Use the following procedure to create a custom computational insight.

  1. Start with an existing analysis. On the top menu bar, choose Add+. Then choose Add Insight.

    A container for the new insight is added to the analysis. The following screen appears.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose the computation that you want to use from the list. As you choose each item, an example of that insight's output displays. When you find the one that you want to use, choose Select.

    • Exit this screen and customize the insight manually. An unconfigured insight has a Customize insight button. Choose the button to open the Configure narrative screen. For more information on using the expression editor, see Creating autonarratives with Insights.

    Because you are initiating the creation of the insight, it's not based on an existing visual. When the insight is added to the analysis, it displays a note showing what kind of data it needs to complete your request. For example, it might ask for 1 dimension in Time. In this case, you add a dimension to the Time field well.

  3. After you have the correct data, follow any remaining screen prompts to finish creating the custom insight.

  4. (Optional) To remove the insight from your analysis, choose the v-shaped on-visual menu at the top right of the visual. Then choose Delete.
