Adding or Removing a Field

You can add a field to a visual by choosing it on the Fields list pane, dragging it to a drop target on the visual, or dragging it to a field well. There is a 1:1 correspondence of drop targets to field wells for each visual type, so you can use whichever method you prefer.

To remove a field from a visual, deselect it in the Fields list pane, or choose an on-visual editor or field well that uses that field, and then choose Remove from the pop-up menu.

Adding a Field by Selecting It in the Fields List Pane

If you want to let Amazon QuickSight map the field to the most appropriate visual element, simply choose the field in the Fields list pane and Amazon QuickSight adds it to the visual by populating the first empty field well that corresponds with that field type (either measure or dimension). If all of the visual elements are already populated, Amazon QuickSight determines the most appropriate field well and replaces the field in it with the field you selected.

Adding a Field by Using a Drop Target

To add a field to a visual by using a drop target, choose a field in the Fields list pane and then drag the field to your chosen drop target on the visual, making sure the drop indicator shows that the field is being added.

Adding a Field by Using a Field Well

To add a field to a visual by using a field well, choose a field in the Fields list pane and then drag the field to the target field well, making sure the drop indicator shows that the field is being added.

  1. Expand the Field wells pane by choosing the expand icon.

  2. Drag the field you want to add from the Fields list pane to the appropriate field well.
