Visualizations How-To

1. Create a New Visualization

Once your query has finished running for the first time, you can add a visualization by clicking the “New Visualization” button above the results table.

2. Edit A Visualization

You can modify the settings of an existing visualization from the query editor screen. Click the visualization on the tab bar and you’ll see an Edit Visualization option beneath each visualization. Clicking it will open the current settings for that visualization (type, X axis, Y axis, groupings etc.). Hit “Save” to apply your changes or “Cancel” to leave no trace.

3. Embedding Visualizations

It’s easy to embed visualizations. Just click the ellipsis button beneath any visualization to show further options and select Embed Elsewhere.

This will pop up the <iframe> code you can drop into your HTML pages.

Queries with text-type parameters do not support embeds

PNG image Embeds

For SaaS customers, there is also a hardlink to a PNG of your visualization hosted through The PNG embed is especially useful in contexts where iframes won’t work (like GitHub issues). If you need the visualization PNG to include a Cache-Control: no-cache header, just tack the Query String variable ?no-cache to the end of your PNG embed link.

Query String Variables for Embeds

You can append query string variables to your embed URLs:

  • ?hide_parameters hides any parameter selection widgets

  • ?hide_timestamp hides the timestamp

Downloading A Visualization as an Image File

For chart visualizations, you can also download a local image file. Just hover your mouse near the top right area of the visualization and click the camera icon that appears. A PNG will be downloaded to your device.
