How to add data from multiple Data Sources to 1 Databoard

You can add data from multiple Data Sources to a Databoard by using the Datablock Library or the list of blank Visualization Types in the Designer. 

1
 Click the Datablock Library icon on the lefthand side of the Designer.
2
 Choose the Data Source you want to add to the Databoard from the Datablock Library from the Data Source drop-down list.

3
 Search for a pre-built Datablock that reports on the data you're looking for, using the Search bar if necessary. If a pre-built Datablock isn't available for your data, click on the Visualization Types icon right below the Datablock Library.

4
 Drag and drop the selected Datablock to your Databoard. 

If you have chosen a pre-built Datablock from the Datablock Library, this will automatically populate with data from the selected Data Source. 

If you have chosen a Datablock from the list of Visualization Types, you will need to use the righthand Property Manager to map to the appropriate Data Source and Metric.
5
 To add another Datablock to the Databoard, navigate back to the Datablock Library and choose the next Data Source you want to add data from to your Databoard.
6
 Search for a pre-built Datablock that reports on the data you're looking for. If a pre-built Datablock isn't available for your data, click on the Visualization Type icon right below the Datablock Library.
7
 Drag and drop the selected Datablock to your Databoard. 
  • If you have chosen a pre-built Datablock from the Datablock Library, this will automatically populate with data from the selected Data Source. 
  • If you have chosen a Datablock from the list of Visualization Types, you will need to use the righthand Property Manager to map to the appropriate Data Source and Metric. 
Each Datablock is completely unique from all other Datablocks on the Databoard.
8
 Repeat this process for the remaining Datablocks you want to add to your Databoard.

How to add data from multiple Data Sources to 1 Datablock

You can only add data from multiple Data Sources to one Datablock using the Pie Chart or basic Table Visualization. 

1
 Click the Visualization Type icon on the lefthand side of the Designer.
2
 Drag and drop the Table or Pie Chart Visualization to your Databoard.
3
 In the righthand Datablock Settings panel, select Data From: Multiple Metrics. This will allow you to manually map each row of the Table or slice of the Pie Chart to a different Metric and/ or Data Source.
4
 Select the Data Source and Metric that you want to populate the first row of the Table or slice of the Pie Chart.
5
 Click + Add new row.
6
 Select the Data Source and Metric you want to populate the next row of the Table or slice of the Pie Chart.
7
 Repeat this process for the remaining rows of the Table or slices of the Pie Chart that you want to add to the Datablock.
