As of 3.26, it is now possible to exclude a field that exists in the data table from its corresponding visualization.
##Possible Use Cases
This could be useful in situations where you want to:
- Chart a table calculation, but not the fields that are used to calculate it
- Make a single value visualization from a table calculation
- Sort by a field that you don’t want to see in your chart
- Apply a reference line to a table calculation (if it’s the first series included in the chart)
Feel free to post additional use cases in the comments below!
##How It’s Done
From the data table, simply click the gear button that corresponds to a field, and select “Hide From Visualization.” An eye icon will appear to let you know that the field is hidden.
Then, chart as usual!
