Charting & Data Tables

Visualize query results with a range of chart types and data tables, and easily export to Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, Google Slides, Microsoft Powerpoint, Teams, Slack, and more.

Zing will automatically display the data in a way that makes sense for the data you selected. For instance, if you havetime as field in your question, Zing will automatically plot time on the x-axis from low to high. You can easily change to an alternative visualization if you wish, and can re-order data points, as described below.

If a question does not have a visualization which can be displayed (e.g. a table of text fields), Zing will simply show a table of results. Custom queries (where you provide SQL instead of using Zing’s tap-to-quuery interface) will display results using a table.

Visualization Types

Zing offers an range of visualization types, which vary based on the number of fields (and field type) returned in your question’s answer:

  • Bar Chart
  • Stacked Bar Chart
  • Grouped Bar Chart
  • Line Chart
  • Area Chart
  • Donut Chart

Toggle between chart types and data tables by tapping the upper right Chart Selection drop down

Tap on a data point in a chart to see a tooltip showing with the value of that data point and its category.

On iOS and Android, you can pinch-to-zoom into specific values or part of a graph.

Sorting

You can easily change the order values are displayed on the graph or data table.

To sort a graph, tap the x-axis and a ‘sort by’ controls will appear below your chart. You can sort by the x-axis, or y-axis from ascending or descending order.

To sort a data table, tap the field name and it toggle between unsorted, descending, and ascending.

Exporting Graphs and Data Tables

Save graphs to your phone’s photo gallery by tapping the three dots in the top right of the app and click ‘save to photo gallery’. You may need to grant Zing permissions to save files to your phone. These images will be saved as PNGs and can be accessed by other apps on your phone to make it easy to send charts and analysis in email, Slack, and to embed in documents from your mobile device. Easily drop these graphs into Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Slides, Microsoft Powerpoint, Microsoft Word, or Google Docs.

Save tables to your phone by tapping the three dots in the top right of the app and click ‘save table as CSV’. You may need to grant Zing permissions to save files to your phone. This will provide a comma seperated values file which can be used in other apps on your phone such as email, Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, and more.
