Periscope's SQL Views let the user define a table once that the whole team can use. By using the Periscope Data Cache add-on, users have the option to allow Periscope to optimize the view by keeping it materialized in the cache.
To get started, hover on the SQL Views menu in the header:
Click the "+" button and name the view.
The example here creates a view with all of the iOS Gameplays. This view will do the initial cleaning of the raw data:
The view is now available in the schema tab, where users can see what columns are available in the view:
When making the chart, anyone can select from the view like so:
SQL Views can be aliased by calling the syntax within the square brackets:
The new view will help count new iOS Gameplays over time:
All views are public to all write-access users regardless of whether or not it is published. However, as an indication to the team that the view is ready for public consumption, flip the "Published" switch at the top of the View:
This will put the View in the left-hand "Published" list. Everyone at the company sees the same list of Published Views.
