Data Analysis in the Desktop edition (aka Slicing & dicing)
Sorting, grouping, filtering, charting, aggregation

Memento provides the ability to view entries in the Entries List as a straightforward list of entries. In addition, it provides an assortment of list features the user can use:

  • to sort or view the entries in various orders (sequences),
  • to filter the data to see only the entries you want to see, view entries in groups with subtotals,
  • to chart or view the entries' field values plotted on a chart to give the user a visual image of how the data values relate to each other,
  • and to aggregate or view totals & subtotals, averages, minimums, or maximums.
