INFOGRAPHICS HAS LIMITATION

Hi,

I would like to list out few of the issues I faced while using Datameer for my work. I am using Datameer 6.3.2.1

While creating infographics I found out that I was only able to take maximum of 10 columns/attributes/fields to prepare a chart or any graph. Can anyone of you confirm me on this and help me out how to overcome this issue. Or is it a limitation of tool that it can only take 10 columns (I need more than 20-25 columns) and not more than that for a single chart/graph.

Secondly, I found out that working a given chart/graph I could only use data from only 1 Sheet and cannot use multiple sheets. This is a major issue for me as I may need data from multiple sheets (I have more than 100).

Can any one of you help me out on this. Please let me know if there is a way or confirm me that this is a limitation of the tool.

I would be grateful to hear from you.

Thanks a lot .

    Hello Sudeepta.

    • Depends on a Widget type, number of columns and data types it could handle might vary. But I'm not aware about strict limitation to 10 columns, e.g. Table Widget could handle 20+ columns. From other side, an Infographic that shows 10-20 different parameters at a one particular chart, might be a bit difficult for reading and understanding. Do you face any particular error message, when you are trying to add more sources to a chart? 
    • As the data in all the columns visualized need to be correlated, it should come from a single Sheet. This is not a limitation, this is the approach how Datameer works with a dataset. If you would like to add more data, it would be required to bring it at a common Sheet, e.g. via Join, Union or other instruments.

    Please let me know if you would have any further questions on this topic.
