How to display name of Created By from Sharepoint Online?

Hello,

 

So I'm trying to bring author information from a list that is in Sharepoint Online. However when I check, all I see are UserIds and the Author field has Record link which takes me to a small table containing info on that particular user who submitted an item in the list.

 

Isn't there a way to just get the author as a text value from that field and display it in the graphs?

Use the expand arrows for the column to expand the Record to the Author's actual name.

What expand arrow? Is this in Query Editor? This is what I have.

All I can is drill down and it gives additional information, but I want to extract the drilled down data. Title gives name of the author here, so I would like to extract that information

Those little arrows in the column header on the right side.
