Editing Views & Columns

Editing Views and Creating New Views

A screen may contain up to 12 views. You can rename them, duplicate them, export the view results into CSV (Enterprise users only), and add your own custom views.

To add a new view, simply click the Add View button. You can then name your view and add columns as you see fit.

To rename, duplicate, export a view into CSV, or delete it, simply click the arrow icon next to a view's name and select the action you want to perform.

Editing Columns

To edit columns from an existing view or a new view, you can either do it directly from a given column header, or from the column manager dialog, accessible on the far right of your screen (wand icon).

Zooming in on the column header capabilities, you can directly edit the column transformations from there:

You can also move column placement by drag-and-dropping them as you see fit. If you want to bulk edit your columns for a given view, the column manager is the best place to do so. Click on Manage Columns in the far right of your screen, or click the column manager dialog (wand icon) to access it.

From there, you can directly add and remove columns, re-order them, and add transformations to selected metrics. When you're done making your changes, simply click on Update and they will be applied to your your view.


Similar to the filters, you can also apply functions to the different metrics. To do so, select a metric in the middle column of the column manager.

From there, multiple functions are available for each metric:

  • Specific Date: You can select to a date in the past for which you want to see a given metric such as price or market cap.
  • Transformation functions:
    • Sum: cumulative sum of a given over a defined time-period. Only available for cumulative metrics.
    • Average: the average of a given metric over a defined time-period
    • Min: minimum value of a given metric over a defined time-period
    • Max: maximum value of a given metric over a defined time-period
    • Median: median of a given metric over a defined time-period
    • Change: absolute change of a given metric over a defined time-period. Available for Price, Marketcap and other metrics.
    • % Change: percentage change of a given metric over a defined time-period. Available for Price, Marketcap and other metrics.

For each of these transformations, you can select from a large array of timeframe options settings:

  • Last X days or hours: Hour-based timeframes are only available for Volume and price metrics at the moment.
  • Specific Year (2022, 2021 etc...)
  • To date: Month-to-Date, Quarter-to-Date, Year-to-Date
  • Custom timeframes. Select an interval between two custom dates, or select a single date to apply a transformation since that date.

Customizing Column Names

You can also set custom names for your columns by using the column options menu.

Hover over a column header until the carrot icon appears:

Check the Use custom column name box at the bottom.

Update the column's name and press Apply.

Deleting Columns

At any point, you can delete existing columns straight from the column's header or the column manager.
