Hover over a variable and click on the Categories button to create a category.
You can also create a category via the Data Tables section at the bottom of the screen. Click on the Categories dropdown, then the + New Category button. You can rename a category by double-clicking on its name in the data table view.
Causal shows a data table view for each category of your model. The first column of the data table is always its primary category. Subsequent columns represent variables or other categories.
A variable will appear as a column in a data table if:
- It uses the data table's category; and
- Its values are all hardcoded (i.e. not generated from a formula)
Add new category items in the bottom row of the Data Tables section where it says New Item.
To paste data in (e.g. from a spreadsheet), simply copy your data, then select your row/s, and paste (Ctrl/Cmd + V). Causal will "paste over" whatever row/s you had selected. If you don't want to paste over what you have already in the Data Table, then create a New Item at the bottom of the table (you may have to take off alphabetical sorting if you have that applied), select that New Item, and paste over that.
