Parabola Tables

In this lesson, we dive into dashboards and the core concepts of Tables — databases that live in Parabola and power dashboards and visualizations. 

Building challenge

In this challenge, we’ll create a Table that is grouped by status and warehouse to make it easy for the team to review SKUs with low inventory levels. 

  • In the Inventory report Table, group rows first based on status, then by warehouse.
  • Change the color of the Table to green, and freeze the first column of data. 
  • Add a calculation to the Available column and sum up units available by status. Format the column to include a comma. 

To check your work, take a look at this quick video.
