friedEgg Touch differs from other basic charting tools in that it allows the user to interact with their data by directly manipulating a chart. This enables complex analysis, across many dimensions, in a few simple steps. Using the provided Automator actions, friedEgg Touch is easily integrated into an analysis workflow.
Take data from a simple table and assign the columns to a 3D chart. Then explore and analyse it directly in the chart, touching the bars and pie segments to reveal their content. Adjust the scale of each chart dimension, to group data within the bars and further simplify the chart. Drag filters across the chart to select ranges of bars, or select the items individually. Use the selected data in further analysis steps, applying different data columns to the 3D chart. Enhance the analysis by adjusting the format of the data and the layout of the chart. Finally create a report listing the selected data or export the chart image to a presentation.
Having created an Analysis, similar data tables can be analysed using the same formatting and filtering. This could, for example, assist with the regular weekly or monthly review of sales data, or any other table of data.
Use the Automator actions to embed friedEgg Touch in your analysis workflow. Load data from a spreadsheet to an analysis template, print a report with the selected data and then export the data to another spreadsheet and the chart image to a presentation.
