Example Metrics

Examples of common metrics


Data in dashboards can be augmented with metrics. Each dataset will contain a section for Metrics. Metrics can be written and modified with PostgreSQL-flavored SQL.

In order to view and edit metrics and calculated expressions, perform the following steps:

  1. Sign into plaidcloud.com and navigate to dashboards
  2. From within visualize.plaidcloud.com, navigate to Data > Datasets
  3. Search for a dataset to view or modify
  4. Modify the dataset by hovering over the edit button beneath Actions


Calculated columns are typically additional columns made by combining logic and existing columns.
