Below the report title is the report type switcher. Different icons represent various ways you can visualize your reports.
Below these icons are different data sections. These sections are where you drag measures or attributes from the data catalog. Depending on the report type, you may have the following sections: Measures, Rows, Columns, View By, Stack By, Trend By, and Segment By. Each section will have a different purpose for the specific report type you choose. For example, a bar chart will only have Measures, View By, Stack By, and Configuration sections, as these are the only sections needed to generate a bar graph. Bar graphs don’t have rows or columns, so the Rows and Columns sections will not appear.
Below the data sections is the configuration box. By default, the configuration box is minimized. It will expand to show you different configuration options for the report type you’ve chosen when you click on it.
