Using Tables as Visuals - Amazon QuickSight

Using Tables as Visuals

Use a table visual to see a customized table view of your data. To create a table visual, choose at least one field of any data type. You can add as many columns as you need, up to 200. You can also add calculated columns.

Table visuals don't display a legend. You can hide or display the title on a table. You can also hide or display totals, and choose to show totals at the top or the bottom of the table. For more information, see Format Options Available in Analytics.

The icon for a table is as follows.

To create a table visual

  1. Open Amazon QuickSight and choose Analyses on the navigation pane at left.

  2. Choose one of the following:

    • To create a new analysis, choose New analysis at upper right. For more information, see Creating an Analysis.

  5. On the Fields list pane, choose the fields that you want to use. If you want to add a calculated field, choose Add (+), Add calculated field.

    To create a nonaggregated view of the data, add fields only to the Value field well. Doing this shows data without any aggregations.
