What are Basic, Custom, and Calculated Metrics?


How to define Basic Metrics 

Basic Metrics are Metrics that are available by default in Databox. No additional work is required to report on these Metrics, so they allow you to quickly and efficiently access data from your Data Sources. 

How to define Custom Metrics

Custom Metrics are Metrics that are built using Metric Builder. Metric Builder is not available for every Data Source, so this section will not exist on the Metrics page for every Data Source.

How to define Calculated Metrics

Calculated Metrics are Metrics that are built using Data Calculations. Data Calculations allows you to combine Metrics from any Data Source in an equation to create a new Calculated Metric. 

It is possible to create Calculated Metrics using Metrics from multiple Data Sources. Learn more about Data Calculations here
