Data Format


Build Your SuperList

After importing your data, the Roambi SuperList view will be automatically configured and ready to publish. To further customize your SuperList view or make changes, tap the "Choose Your Columns" button on the left.


There are two dimensions and fields that can be configured.

The Key Column defines the column that is anchored on the left of the SuperList. By default, Roambi selects the first column from your data source file. You may define only one (1) key column in Roambi SuperList.


The Columns is a list of object list that you choose to display in the table.

Click the columns to include or exclude each one from the table as follows:

  • ON. When included in the report, the column is highlighted and a checkmark appears. For this lesson, leave all the columns ON.
  • OFF. When excluded from the report, the column is not highlighted and no checkmark appears.


Comparisons defines the list of indicators and KPIs to be compared. Any measure can be used in a comparison, and Roambi also provides some out of box aggregation methods for you to create aggregated measures.

Additionally, you can configure the number of text rows for the column header in Roambi SuperList. The default is two.
