This guide will go through the steps to customize the display of the narrative (paragraph or bullets layout) and adjust aspects of the language used within the narrative.
These features can all be found in the "Narrative Settings". After a narrative is generated, you can get to the narrative settings by clicking "Settings"
Note: When you apply these settings, they will be saved across your chrome sessions. When you navigate away from a particular narrative and come back, those settings will still be there.
Within Narrative Settings, you fill find several tabs. The guides in the help center will go into each of these in detail. This article is focused on "Language" and "Display"
When you click "Display" you will see the ability to apply text styles and adjust how the narrative will be rendered (bullets or paragraphs).
When you click on "bullets" and click back to "Narrative", you will see the narrative appears in bulleted form
The rules you set for text styles are related to "Thresholds". These are the styles and colors that will be applied when you choose to format parts of the narrative based on thresholds of trend line or segment analysis.
When you click on the "Language" tab of Narrative Settings, you will see the ability to customize "Verbosity" and choose the language to describe dimensions.
1) Verbosity: When you choose "High", the narrative will be longer and go into more detail and perform more analytics. When you choose "Low", the narrative will be shorter with less detail.
2) At the bottom of the language settings, you will notice a list of the available dimensions that can be expanded. When you expand a dimension, you will see the way the dimension will be referenced both in singular and plural form.
3) In this example, we are measuring sales by month. So we can change the singular and plural dimension labels to "month" and "months"
You can click the "Add variation" button and fill in the text boxes if you want the extension to cycle through different references to the dimension.
4) When you click back to "Narrative", you will notice the narrative refers to the dimension as "month" and "months"
