Here are the different type of graphs and charts you can create within the reports dashboard:

KPI Graph

Line Graph

Pie and Donut Charts

Bar and Column Chart

KPI Graph

The key performance indicator (KPI) chart will allow you to present data in a way where you can see immediately if your numbers have increased, decreased, or stayed the same during the selected time period.

The viewing for date on the dashboard determines the timeframe for the comparison.

For example, if the value is:

  • Today, the data will be compared to yesterday

  • This week, the data will be compared to last week

  • This month, the data will be compared to month

Line Graph

The line graph allows you to display your data over time when activity date is selected as the primary display. You can monitor the increase and decrease of your data with a single line view on the graph.

Your selected Primary Display option will be the X axis on the graph and the count will be the graphs Y axis.

When a Secondary display option is selected you'll see multiple lines on your graph to represent these different values. This allows you to easily compare these to each other.

When there is multiple display options selected chart legend will show. This is a key of what data is currently being presented.

Hovering over one of the points on the line graph will show a tooltip of the relevant display options. When there is one option selected the tooltip will be singular, however having multiple options selected will show a stacked tooltip.

You can click on individual values in the graph legend to remove these from the line graph view. You will know the data has been removed if there is a line through the legend value.

Pie and Donut Charts

Pie and Donut charts will display your data by converting percentages of data into segments of the chart. The arc length of each slice is proportional to the quantity it represents.

These charts are displayed alongside a chart legend, this is a key of what data is currently being presented.

When you hover over a section the tooltip shows the segments primary display value.

You can click on individual values in the chart legend to remove these from the chart view.

You will know the data has been removed if there is a line through the legend value. To include the data back into the chart you can simply click on the value within the chart legend.

Bar and Column Charts

Bar charts will display your data in a standard horizontal bar graph. The data count will show along the X axis and your primary display will show along the Y axis.

Column charts are very similar to bar charts with the only difference being your data count is displayed on the Y axis and your primary display on the X axis.

When creating a bar or column chart that has both a primary and secondary display value selected, you can choose weather this is stacked or unstacked using the Stacked checkbox.

When stacked is checked the data will show in one column or bar, split into different colours for each secondary display value. The hover over tooltip will also be stacked.

When stacked is unchecked the data will show in separate columns, split into different colours for each secondary display value. The hover over tooltip will also be unstacked, only showing information for the bar that you are currently hovered over.

When a bar or column chart has a primary and secondary display selected a key will also show, advising what secondary display value each bar is associated to. Hovering over each key item will also highlight the associated bar.

Selecting an item on the key will remove the associated bars from the graph, allowing further filtering to occur. To include these bars back into the graph you can simply select the item on the key again.
