The Data Slicer provides an interface for filtering the Microreact project's display by limiting the data shown, based on a preselected column.
The filtering done with a Data Slicer is the same functionality as filtering from within the metadata table, but simplified to show only a single column. It's useful when the data contain many columns, or when there is a column frequently used for filtering.
Silent demo showing data slicer:
Adding and configuring a data slicer panel
Add a Data Slicer panel using the edit panels button
Choose a data column that you want to filter the data by (each of these will become a checkbox)
Choose a Group if you want sub-sections in the listing of checkboxes and the option to colour by a different level of detail.
Choose whether to show bars (and whether to colour them). The bars represent the number of data rows represented by that value.
Choose whether to sort the existing values in alphabetical order or by frequency of occurrence.
