How do I override a value?

If you need an alternative value to the source number (which you can review in Sources) to be plotted in your content, you can apply an override in Data Hub > Definitions.

1. Select a data category using the drop down menu above the plottable items data table. Choose a subject company from the search bar at the top of the table.

2. Scroll down to the metric you want to override and hover over the value. Click the pencil icon. This will open the Definition Editor. Here you can review the company, plottable, time period, currency, and current value.



3. In the Override box, enter the new value. You can also add any comments, URLs, or page numbers for your own reference. Hit Save once finished.


4. The screen will reload, showing the override value underlined in blue.

Please note: A value override will only be active in your account and will not be shared with all users in your organization.
