After you load the dataset to prepare it for Tellius to use it for generating valuable insights, you can edit the dataset and make the necessary changes to the columns of the dataset.

Once you complete the changes to the column, you can publish the changes to make them effective.

  1. On the Prepare page, click the Edit button.
  2. Move the mouse pointer on the column header and click the down arrow to get options to edit the column.
  3. Select any of the following options to make the necessary changes:



    Data Type

    Change the data type of the column to another applicable format.

    Note: If you change the format to incorrect format, you may loose the data in the column. For example, if you change the String type column to Double or Integer, the column values will be changed to null and you can not revert the original values.

    Column Type

    Change the column type from Measure to Dimension and vice versa.
