What is Sample Data in dashboard widgets?
When you are creating a widget in the Custom Dashboards, you can use sample data to populate the graphs and tables to give you an idea as to how that widget will look once it is fully built out and saved.
Often, when setting up a new Data Source, all the fetched data may not be immediately available. By using sample data, you can continue working without having to wait for the full dataset to propagate.
Where does Sample Data come from?
When TapClicks conducts an initial fetch, it will grab roughly 1000 rows of data. This small set of data is used to populate graphs with "sample data".
If you would rather see more real-time data, as in data that corresponds to the date range you have selected, you can go into the draw options on the right-hand side to select that option.
