Learn how to drill through different levels of your hierarchical data to reveal additional details.

When a visualization has a hierarchy, you can drill down or up to navigate and view data for the different levels of the hierarchy. The drill path is part of the analysis context, so it acts as a filter that allows you to narrow down the data to a specific population.

  • Double-click a chart item.
  • Select a chart item and then click the Drill down button on the Insights tab of the Info panel.

Let's say, you're looking at the Breakdown of Headcount by Location Hierarchy. The Location Hierarchy may contain the following levels: Region, Country, State/Province, and City. By default, the visual shows the top level of the hierarchy so you would see Headcount for each Region: North America, EMEA, APAC, and South America. By double-clicking a chart item, you can drill down to the next level of the hierarchy to see a more detailed picture. In this example, let's say you drilled down on the North America chart item, you would see Headcount for each country: United States and Canada.

When you have drilled down in a visual, the drill path appears as a token in the Analysis Context toolbar. Click the token to reveal the entire drill path.

You can click different parts of the drill path to drill back up in the visual. Click See all to edit the filter.
