Showing and hiding pivot table columns in Amazon QuickSight

By default, all columns, rows, and their field values appear when you create a pivot table. You can hide columns and rows that you don't want to appear in the pivot table without changing the pivot table values. When you have more than one measure in the pivot table, you can also hide values.

At any time, you can choose to show any hidden fields in the pivot table. When you publish the visual as part of a dashboard, anyone who subscribes to the dashboard can export the pivot table to a comma-separated value (CSV) or Microsoft Excel file. They can choose to export only the visible fields, or all fields. For more information, see Exporting data from a dashboard to a CSV.
