Learn how: change a metric's definition

In the Data Hub, you can define how plottable items are calculated in Definitions. For example, you can change how EBITDA is calculated or the components of Total Debt. To change a definition:

1. In Definitions, select a data category at the top of the plottable items data table.


2. Hover over the definition you would like to edit and click the pencil icon toward the right of the table. This will open the Definition Editor. Here, you can see the name, the format, the location, and the ID for that metric. The default definition is shown in the first line of the definition box.


3. Modify a definition by updating the Name:ID [Location] field using the drop-down menu to search for the metric to be used. Click
+Reference to add a new location field.


4. When ready, hit Save. The screen will reload. Expand the data item to see your new definition. 

Please note: Any definition changes will be shared will be confined to the selected data template.
