With a few of us now beta testing Custom Charts, I thought it might be useful to have a thread to share feedback & ask questions, as I’m sure many of us will have the come across similar problems.
I need to spend a little more time with it, but some of my initial thoughts:
Will the ability to create custom charts be extended beyond ‘Admin’ role? I would say that anyone with Analyst permission should be able to create them. (Ideally, it might be a separate permission we can grant, but certainly shouldn’t be an ‘admin’ role)
A lot of the visualisations from Vega-Lite allow you to apply additional parameters (for example, for a histogram, setting the number of bins). rather than hard-coding these values, and for these custom charts to truely be re-usable, we need to be able to create a new user-input field for these parameters, and then pass that value through to the definition. (I can create a new input field, but this forces the user to select a field from the dataset which isn’t what we want here)
Be good if we could apply our existing colour palette to the chart rather needing to hard-code this.
longer term, being able to store these definitions in our github repo alongside our AML models would be preferable
