Dashboard Insights

Dashboard insights are added to the Wyn Dashboards to show additional insights from your data that may not be visible otherwise such as outliers, trends, etc. It will refer to the data and extrapolate insights based on the changes within the data.

You can add data insight for the dashboards using the InsightIQ component or you can directly use the Insight option from the More Action menu as explained below in the section Scenarios that support the Data Insights. It will give the details on the data of a given visual. The insight item details contain 3 parts:

  • Title(Measure, Pattern)

  • Description

  • Related Visual

Insight Patterns

Wyn supports 7 insight patterns. It analyzes the data by all 7 patterns one by one and collects the matched patterns to show. So, not all 7 patterns are shown for every scenario. For scenarios if none of the patterns matches, then no insight is generated.

We will analyze the data by all 7 patterns one by one as below:

  1. Trend: It shows which categories are significantly below average on a measure.


  2. Time Series Outlier: It shows some data anomalies as compared to the baseline.

    Time series outlier

  3. Low Variance: It shows which categories are significantly below average on a measure.

    low variance

  4. Correlation: The correlation between the two data is the highest, and the two measures in the given data show a high positive or negative correlation.


  5. Category Outlier: It shows which categories stand out on a measure.

    category outlier1

  6. Majority: It shows the category that dominates in a measure.


  7. Change Point: It shows a point at which there is a dramatic change in the data.

Not all scenarios will have an insight. So, when there are no insights, then by clicking the Insight option, you will see the following message.

Typically, the more data bindings you have, the more the chances that there is an insight that can be found as there is more data to pull out the patterns.

Adding Insights to the dashboard with a Column Chart

  1. From the Dashboard Toolbox, open the Data Visualization node and drag-drop the InsightIQ on to the design area.
