Validating outputs of datasets and dataflows

I have complex cards that pull from different giant data sources and have multiple filters & formulas applied in the dataflow. The resulting graph sometimes doesn't gut-check and only after doing a cumbersome manual check against my original Excel file do I see that it was not pulling the desired information. 

 

How can I more efficiently validate the outputs shown in a card?

  • You could consider putting "raw" table cards on the page to show the data in a simple table format. This allows for a quick scan (and filter) of the actual data. You could also select a common value field and make it the summary number so that you could quickly check to validate (count of rows, count of a certain dimension, sum of a certain value, etc). 

  • @Katie, did Kung-fu_Panda's reply help you out?
