The grid can be displayed in different forms to enhance the storytelling of a particular dataset. The WebDataRocks supports 3 types of pivot table layouts: classic, compact, and flat view.
A flat layout is the simplest form and corresponds to a regular table, where the data is presented in a non-aggregated raw form without hierarchies. Such a layout gives a dataset overview with quick access to the full details of each record.
Standard grid functionality is also preserved in the flat view: filtering, sorting, the ability to change the order of columns and rows, and grand total for number values are available through the UI.
Each grid form has its use cases and is better to use in specific cases. You can learn more about their advantages in the grid layout documentation.
