Dashboards and alarms Timeline reports

241. Timeline reports

This lesson is based on theLive dataset.

Another way to visualize trends is to use line charts 📈 or bar charts 📊.

By now we’ve written a ton of those queries, it’s a simple grouping by date and counting. We just need to spice it up with a filter relative to the current timestamp:

SELECT created_at::date AS date, COUNT(*) FROM users WHERE created_at > now() - '30 days'::interval GROUP BY 1 ORDER BY 1 DESC 

💡 Go ahead and draw a chart for that query. 📊

This timeline query is very powerful, it’s a template for any table that contains a timestamp field (created_at or anything_happened_at)....
