What is a CSV file?

Do you use data sources that we haven’t yet integrated in DashThis, or any other types of custom data, and you would like to add them in your dashboards?  CSV files are the way to go!

 

A CSV file is basically an Excel file that was exported in a Comma Separated Values format. It means the file consists only of rows and columns: plain data without any formatting. This format is typical among almost all tools that allow data exportation.

 

Here’s an example of how a CSV file looks like:

 

ID,ACME,,

Date,2016-05-12,,

Campaign Name,Ad Clicks,Ad Cost,Ad Impressions

Alpha,1582,$205.00,3256

Beta,1425,$226.00,4512

Omega,1852,$305.00,7582

Theta,1201,$177.00,2856

Zeta,1565,$254.00,4512
