After running a new report or opening a saved report, there are many actions you can take to work with the data. One of these options is adding a chart to visually summarize the data.
Please note that charts will not be included if you export a report from your GLM or SLM site. Charts are a helpful tool for summarizing data in reports that you intend to work with or share directly in your site.
Add a Chart
- On your report, click Add Chart.
- Click the type of chart you'd like to build.
- Depending upon the type of chart you select, there will be a variety of different options available to customize the chart. As you change your selections, the chart will automatically update.
- Remember to save the changes you've made to your report when you're done.
A description of each chart type is listed below. Please note that some chart types might not be available, depending upon the type of data in your report.
- Bar: The length/height of each bar represents a numeric value across another variable.
- Line: This shows the change in one numeric variable across another variable, with a straight line fit to the data.
- Curved Line: This shows the change in one numeric variable across another variable, with a curved line fit to the data.
- Pie: The pie pieces represent the distribution of one variable across another.
- Scatter Plot: The placement of dots represent the distribution of one variable across another.
- Heatmap: This shows the distribution of one variable across one or two others, represented by colors and sizes of blocks.
- Gauge: This shows the value of a variable in comparison to different goal values.
