Is there a way to graph calculated fields in the Looker visualization frame?

Hi @Joe_Conti!

Calculated fields in Looker visualizations are graphed automatically, just like normal fields. However, if you want to treat a calculation as a measure (so it will be represented as a series on the y axis) then it needs to include a measure in its definition.

The quick way to do this is with a table calc involving an existing measure:

(your calculation) + ( ${measure} * 0)

where measure is any measure in the explore.

Please let us know if you have any further questions!
