When I right-click on a visualization report, I get the "see records" option, I click on it, and I get the right number of records but a column that I'd like displayed as well, is not showing, I can add it while being in the "see records" section, but once I click on "back to report", then it's gone.
I reviewed the table's definition and it's including it. How can I add a column in that section and make it stay? where is the "see records" setup?
Thanks a lot!

I have the same issue. I want to add columns and change the order of the columns, all of which i can do when i am looking at the records, but they are gone when i drill back in.

I am having the exact same issue.
I have a Column (Column A) that is made up by subtracting Column B from Column C, however only Column A is shown, but I would like all 3 Columns to be shown.
Has anybody found a way around this?

This has also been a thorn in the side of my dashboards for some time. The columns where I have calulcated a figure appear, but not the columns used to generate said figure.
If anyone could help it would be very much appreciated.

this "Seems like it is picking up all the text based fields when you see click records."
It doesn't make sense, but that's how it works, the "see records" include the fields that are already part of the visualization you're working on, plus the text based fields left on your table, so, I tested changing the datatype of one of my measure fields that I wanted to show into a text, and when I right-clicked for the "see records" option, now I could see the field I was testing with in the records.
Hope this helps! at least while it's fixed.

Thanks, that works, but is quite unfortunate that we need to do this work-around. I was really excited when they added the "See Records" feature. That feature is incredibly valuable for us. However, that certain fields are filtered out is a major flaw. We also need to be able to rearrange fields the way we want to.

Do you mean in the original visualization or in the See Records visualization?
When i do this to the original, it then distorts the visual as it is pulling in values i do not want included at all. When i add them in See Records, they dont keep once you go back to the report and drill in again later / via another route.

@ZLJ, I mean in the 'See Records' visualization. You are right that these filters don't keep once go back to the report, however, you can take it as a workaround to choose columns you want when you're going to export data. I'm still waiting for the updates from our senior engineers on how 'See Records' works. Will reply back once I get any updates.

It works for me as an administrator, but my users are unable to the Values pane. They can only see the filters pane and so this workaround does not help my other users. Thank you for the suggestion though.
