Custom Charts

  • General settings: Enter a Title, Subtitle (optional), Axis label (optional), Point size, Line size, Y min (optional), and Y max (optional) for the chart. You can set Stack the values to bring data points on the chart closer together. Stack the values is helpful for charts with many different data points at the max Y value.

  • Summary: This step shows all chosen values. Click SAVE to add the custom chart to the report. Click BACK to change a setting or data source.
