Metabase provides a powerful and user-friendly dashboard interface that allows you to visualize and analyze your data in one place. In this section, we will guide you through the process of creating and customizing dashboards in Metabase.

Visualize questions

Once you have created a question in Metabase, you can visualize it using the following steps:

  1. Click on the "Visualize" button to open the visualization editor.

  2. Choose the type of visualization you want to use from the list of available options.

  3. Configure the visualization by selecting the appropriate fields and adjusting the visualization settings.

  4. Save the visualization by clicking on the "Save" button.

There are quite a few visualizations to choose from. The most used are Tables, line charts, bar charts, pie charts, plain numbers, and rows.

Choosing the right visualization

Metabase provides a wide variety of visualizations to choose from. When selecting a visualization for your question, consider the following factors:

  1. The type of data you are working with, such as numerical or categorical data.

  2. The purpose of the visualization, such as highlighting trends or comparing values.

  3. The audience for the visualization, such as executives or analysts.

  4. By considering these factors, you can choose the best visualization for your question and communicate your insights effectively.

Creating dashboards

Dashboards are a collection of visualized questions. We recommend having a clear idea of which data you want to display here. To create a new dashboard, simply click the "+New" button. Give your dashboard a name and click on the "Create" button to get started.

To add a new visualization to your dashboard, click on the "add question" button. Once you have added all the desired visualizations, you can customize the layout and appearance of your dashboard to suit your needs. You can rearrange the visualizations by dragging and dropping them into place. The customization options of the appearance are still limited, however.
