While Displayr is designed to make it quick and easy to turn data into stories, some people confuse this ease of use with Displayr being only for simple work. However, Displayr can, literally, calculate anything. There is never a need to use multiple products, with all the resulting pain, to get your work done.
In addition to all the in-built calculations - from tables to advanced analysis - you can create your own custom variables, calculations using tables, calculations using cells of tables, and more advanced code as well. This means that you can use Displayr to perform all your analyses, no matter how complex or esoteric.
Calculations using variables
New variables can be inserted into data sets, allowing you to create bespoke variables. These variables will automatically update when you refresh the underlying data (e.g., by recoding input variables, or updating your data file).
Calculations using tables
Calculations can be performed using tables as inputs. This means there is no need to export the data into Excel for basic calculations (for more information, see Bespoke Analyses).
Calculate anything using the R language
In addition to all the standard calculations - +, -, /, *, etc. - Displayr allows you to perform calculations using the R programming language, which is able to compute anything. A few key features:
- You can refer to tables, variables, and anything else from within your custom code.
- Colors make it easy to match the code to the tables and variables.
- All the standard machine learning and statistical functions are included. For example, the code below calculates a p-value for a t-test comparing NPS scores.
