How to interact with analyze data

If you feel the answers you’re getting aren’t what you expected, ask follow-up questions to refine the answers.


Ask questions that result in a single value output, such as What’s the total budget for the IT Department? 


You can also visualize data as bar, line, or pie charts. To do so, ask our analyze data questions like Show me the budget across all departments or How many tasks is Person A assigned to?
