    Important

    The fields do not need to be in the exact order displayed above.

Note

The Arria visualization categorizes MicroStrategy attributes as dimensions, and MicroStrategy metrics as measures.

You've now added all fields to the visualization as dimensions or measures (i.e. attributes or metrics). Next, you’ll configure these fields using the Arria Answers wizard.
