VKL Structure

Here's a brief overview of the structure of the VKL file with the Discovery definition:

  • discovery_category: The highest level of grouping in the discovery. Each category contains several topics.
  • discovery_topic: Each topic belongs to a specific category and contains a number of related questions.
  • discovery_question: These are the actual questions that users can ask, grouped under a specific topic.

Each of these elements has several properties:

discovery_category

  • position: An integer that determines the order in which the categories are displayed.
  • title: The title of the category, displayed to the users.

discovery_topic

  • position: An integer that determines the order in which the topics are displayed within their category.
  • title: The title of the topic, displayed to the users.
  • topic_description: A brief description of the topic, displayed to the users.

discovery_question

  • position: (Optional) An integer that determines the order in which the questions are displayed within their topic. If not provided, questions are ordered by their natural order in the code.
  • question: The actual question, displayed to the users.

Example

Here is an example of how discovery can be structured in Veezoo:

qb {
discovery_category Sales_Analytics {
position: 1
title: "Sales Analytics"

discovery_topic Revenue_Analysis {
position: 1
title: "Revenue Analysis"
topic_description: "Explore key metrics about revenue generation and performance."

discovery_question 1 {
question: "What is the total revenue by product category?"
}

discovery_question 2 {
question: "What is the average transaction value per customer?"
}
}

discovery_topic Sales_Trends {
position: 2
title: "Sales Trends"
topic_description: "Identify sales trends and patterns over time."

...
}
}

discovery_category Customer_Insights {
position: 2
title: "Customer Insights"

...
}
}

In this example, there's a Sales Analytics category containing a Revenue Analysis topic, which itself contains two questions: "What is the total revenue by product category?" and "What is the average transaction value per customer?". The ordering of the categories, topics, and questions is defined by the position property.

Remember, the Discovery functionality in Veezoo is an excellent way to guide your users in their data exploration journey by providing a set of predefined questions grouped in a logical and intuitive way.
