Feature Requests: How your feedback makes Looker betterGetting Started
We have fully transitioned to the method of feedback described below. While you can of course discuss new and desired features right here in the online Community, in order to get your vote counted and officially surface your idea to our product team, please follow the instructions below. We are in the process of migrating all old Discourse feature requests to the new portal. When that’s done, we’ll have an archive of old FR’s here in the community.Your Feedback Is Important To UsWe know that every company says your feedback is important to them, but it’s hard to think of a major advance that we’ve made at Looker that wasn’t directly tied to customer feedback.Customers told us they needed better-looking, faster dashboards, so we rebuilt our dashboard infrastructure from the ground up. Customers were coming up with amazing workarounds to use scheduled data delivery for alerts, so we built native alerts into Looker. Customers started embedding Looker in other environments, so we develop
I have a bar chart with monthly totals (pageviews) and am using a cross filter to show monthly details of other metrics when selected. I have a table including running calculations for each month (month over month percentage changes for each metric). When the month is selected, I want only that month to appear in the table but the table calculations not to change. For example, when July is selected I want to the table to display the percentage changes compared to the previous month (june) instead of compared to itself (as that is the only data not filtered out).
📺 New Looker-Focused Webinar Series Hi everyone! The team at Spectacles is excited to announce our new Looker-focused webinar series. Every two weeks we’ll be getting together to do a deep dive into some area of Looker and analytics. They will be scheduled for Wednesdays at 12pm ET. Each session will be recorded so you can also watch it in your own time if you can’t make the session. The idea for the sessions is to regularly get the Looker community together in the same place and talk about actual hands-on experience with Looker. If you have something that you would be interested in presenting, we would love to hear from you! 🙏 Our first session will be on November 30th. We’ll be talking about How To Fix Your LookML Project Structure, including how to use refinements to keep your code DRY and manageable. You can register for the webinar here 👈. We’ve got the next five webinars already scheduled. You can always see all upcoming webinars on this page. The topics include:Managing Mult
Did you know that companies with analytics capabilities are twice as likely as those without them to rank in the top quarter of their industries' financial performance? I'd venture to say that you want to see your clients prosper. A data offering might make sense given that analytics might aid in their success.But where do I begin? It takes a lot of work to figure out how to productize your data. Tripp Shroom are also selling cannabis products like penis envy spores. Here we prefer our customer to take it easy.
Hi,We use google sheets as a way to load data data into Google Looker Studio to visualize information based on us zip codes. We have something like 40k rows of zip code data.When we tried to vizualize this the UI only shows a few states of data. Is there a way to visualize this data fully? Are there limitations on Map Viz data?Thank you
Hi all,I’m new to Looker and come from a background of mostly using Tableau where my team used to create a ton of aggregation tables and link those to Tableau to display on a dashboard for stakeholders. What I’m trying to understand with Looker is if it’s efficient to continue with this practice of creating aggregate tables on my db for pretty much any view we’d like to report on and then having Looker pick it up OR because of LookerML is it more efficient to bring in the raw tables and create the aggregate views on Looker?
Thanks for attending the Looker Onboarding Webinar, it was great to have you! Here is the deck as a follow up. You can reference the topics we covered, ways to get support, and get started with Looker on the right foot. Look forward to working with you all in the Community going forward, and feel free to ask any follow ups on the thread here.
I am trying to write tests for a new project that will do data tests much like the documentation here.https://cloud.google.com/looker/docs/reference/param-model-testHowever, we are getting our data via API calls, and I cannot find any documentation that shows the syntax on how to set that up similar to what we see here. I saw a page that list various Looker API’s and functions that use them, but nothing that applies them to testing.
