The primary grid on a worksheet is the main location where end users enter and filter data. It contains the data that's most relevant to your users’ needs.

To choose or create a primary grid, you must open the worksheet in designer mode, or create a new worksheet

Your primary grid must display data from the same model as the rest of the page. If you change the view, you can display different data from that model. 

Note: You can't use grid cards as primary cards, but you can expand them to full-screen from the Insights panel.
