Explore: Introduction to Explores

This article outlines the concept of an Explore within the Daasity platform and an explanation of the information that you will find within each Explore article

What is an Explore?

Daasity uses PBL (Powered by Looker) as the visualization platform for our Growth Product and is the recommended visualization platform for our Pro Product.

An Explore is a key concept within the Looker environment as the "Explore" is how the User is able to select dimensions and measures to create a report and for Looker to generate a SQL query to pull data for the requested report.

An Explore is the user view of a model that defines who Looker should combine different Views together and generate a SQL statement.

You can find more information on the concept of an Explore in Looker documentation here

In this section you will find a link to every View that makes up the Explore.  An Explore must have at least one (1) View.

If an Explore has more than one View we will indicate which View is the main View

NOTE: The main View is a key concept in our visualization as any SQL query must have a FROM as part of the query.  This indicates the table that the query first runs against.  The main View is the table where the FROM will run
