Tips and Tricks

  • Overview by CloudScope does not connect to Instagram. It displays existing data in your dataset using familiar Instagram styling.

  • There are five column types representing specific types of data, and one generic "data" type that can be used to show numeric, date, boolean or string data. The visualization can host multiple data columns.

    The first step in using the visual is to add columns from your data model and "map" them to these column types. It is not required to provide all of the column types. If you don't provide a column type it won't be displayed.

  • Data columns should be numeric, date, boolean or string data. The formatting follows Instagram format rules. For example, a value of 1,000,000 will be shown as "1m". A value of 100,000 will be shown as "100k". A value of 1,000 will be shown as "1,000".

  • The recommended size for the profile image is 150x150, which is a standard Instagram size. You can use other sizes, but square images work best because of the "rounded" styling we use for display.
