Chart types

Playing around with the Dashboard features, you may have noticed there are multiple types of charts. We're doing all we can to empower you with a flexible way to visualise data in a way that suits your business needs. Therefore, we've included some of the widely used chart types which you can see below.

Let' spend a minute on each of them to explain what purpose they serve.

Metric Displays a single value and is mainly used to draw attention to high-level metrics.

Bar Displays one or more sets of values by using rectangles whose lengths are proportional to the values.

Line Displays changes for a specific set of data. These types of charts are often used to show the changes or trends over time.

Scatter Displays values on two numeric variables using points positioned on two axes: one for each variable.

Area Starts with the same foundation as a line chart – value points connected by line segments – but adds in a concept from the bar chart with shading between the line and a baseline.

Pie Displays a circular chart in which the relative percentages of the values are represented by wedges or slices of the pie.

Finally, let's look at Data aggregations that help you visualise a high volume of data efficiently.
