Customize the data visualization

You can use the filter boxes under the column’s title to filter the data, which accepts even regular expressions.

For example, try out:

  • Australia OR Portugal to select specific countries (in the first column);
  • 2 to filter by a given value (e.g. 2);
  • 1 OR 3 to filter for two values;
  • !=3 to filter out a value (e.g. NOT 3);
  • >2 to get values more than a minimum (e.g. more than 2);
  • >=1to get values more or equal a minimum (e.g. more or equal 1); and so on.

You can also use multiple filters in more columns at the same time (they will behave like a logical AND).
