Asking Questions

Athenic is a conversational AI allowing you to chat or ask questions on your data.

After you have connected your data source(s) and created your first project, you can begin asking questions. If you are using Athenic AI with WooCommerce and Shopify, see using prebuilt projects.

  • Choose your project by clicking on "Projects" in the left side panel and choose a project or create a new project.

  • Navigate to the "Chat" tab located in the top navigation panel of the project screen.

  • Click into the "Question Bar" to begin typing your question. You may see "Suggested Questions" that you can ask by simply clicking on the question.

  • If you are not sure what data is available, simply click "Data" in the top navigation to see an overview of the tables and columns configured for that project. If you need to adjust what data is available in that project, see Configure Data Source and Data Preparation.

  • For Enterprise implementations, your administrator may have created some Saved Questions for you to reference. See "Saving Questions" for more information.

Once you have clicked "Ask" you will notice that several things begin happening as the query is run.

  • Athenic AI will assess the quality of your question and may offer Tips to improve the accuracy and precision of your question. For more information about the Tips, see "Question Tips".

  • Athenic AI will explain how the data is pulled and what calculations are made in getting your answer. You can also click into see the SQL code by clicked "<> SQL" in the toggle to edit and understand how our SQL parser operates.

  • The tabular view of the data is output first, followed by your graph visualization. Toggle between the two to change views.

  • You can easily edit the graphical output using the "modify graph" bar located below the graph output. This bar handles requests that change the aesthetic or designs of the graph but should not be used to edit the data being used to generate the graph. For more examples on how to use this feature, see Editing a Graph.
