Dimensional Metrics are Metrics that contain Dimensions. Essentially, there is a list of data stored within them. Learn more about Dimensional Metrics here.
In this article, we'll walk through how to select Dimensions for Dimensional Metrics on different Visualization Types. This is especially useful if you want to report on Dimensions independently.
For example, let's say we want to report on the number of Organic Sessions to our Website from HubSpot Marketing. To do this, we will use the HubSpot Marketing Metric "Sessions by Source" and the Dimension "Organic Search."
HOW TO SELECT A DIMENSION ON A..
- Number Block, Progress Bar, or Gauge
- Table or Pie Chart
- Bar Chart, Line Chart, Combo Chart or Multi-Tab Chart
- Pipeline or Funnel
- Compare Block or Interval Block
- Heat Map, Leaderboard or Advanced Table
Number Block, Progress Bar, or Gauge
Number Blocks, Progress Bars, and Gauges are designed to only display 1 Metric Value for each Date Range. Therefore, whenever you add a Dimensional Metric to these Datablocks, you will automatically be prompted to select a Dimension.
Table or Pie Chart
You can select specific Dimensions on Tables or Pie Charts by selecting Data from Multiple Metrics in Datablock Settings. This allows you to create Tables for one particular Dimension, like the Organic Performance Table in the example above. For Pie Charts, this is valuable if you want to exclude one or many Dimensions from the Datablock.
Bar Chart, Line Chart, Combo Chart or Multi-Tab Chart
Bar Charts and Line Charts in these visualizations are unique in that you can select one or many Dimensions to display.
Pipeline or Funnel
Each section of a Pipeline or Funnel can be populated with a different Dimension. This allows you to create Pipelines or Funnels for one particular Dimension, like the Organic Performance Pipeline in the example above.
Multi-Tab Charts are designed to display a Line Chart or Bar Chart on each tab. When an Dimensional Metric is added to a tab, you can select one or many Dimensions to display.
Compare Block or Interval Block
Compare Blocks and Interval Blocks are designed to only display 1 Metric Value for each available space. Therefore, whenever you add a Dimensional Metric to these Datablocks, you will automatically be prompted to select a Dimension.
Heat Map, Leaderboard or Advanced Table
Currently, Heat Maps, Leaderboards, and Advanced Tables don't support the ability to select specific Dimensions. These Datablocks only support Dimensional Metrics at this time.
