What Is It?

The Calculator tool allows you to create new fields in your dataset based on the existing fields in your dataset.


Why Is This Important?

The Calculator tool grants you additional flexibility in how you are able to explore their data through the engineering of new fields. Whether it occurs prior to an analytics workflow or after, you are able to generate discrete outputs that can be used for further analysis or exported into other tools within your ecosystem. The ability to do this also enables you to make rapid adjustments to your data that can lead to improved analysis or overall insights.


How?

You can create new features by taking linear combinations of the existing features or by applying some standard functions included in the Calculator. Note that feature names must be enclosed in square brackets, and suggestions for feature names will appear after typing an open square bracket. These can be clicked to automatically fill the desired feature name.


Example Calculator statement:

[new_column] = Function([existing_column])


Note: The calculator window supports one function or regular expression at a time.
