Charts are useful when you want to display your data on a bar or line chart and demonstrate important relationships between the data points.

After adding the chart into a table or dashboard as explained in the previous chapter, you have to set up the following steps:

1) Data from the table - Select the source for the chart, which can be:

  • Table
  • Custom data source  (If you want to display data from the custom source, you have to define them first in the Data source extension)
Select the source table

2) Chart type - Select the chart type that can be:

  • Bar

  • Line

3) X-axis - select the source fields from the table to display on the X-axis of the chart. Moreover, you can select whether the data will have an ascending or descending tendency.


4) Y-axis - You can choose whether the data will be displayed as a count or if they will be grouped by any other field of the table. Set up then if those values will be ascending or descending.


5) Filters - Do you want to display only specific values from the fields? Use filters! What is more, you can link them with the already set up filters in the table, click on - Link with user filters.

6) Formatting - Here you can add a unit prefix or suffix to X-axis or Y-axis (For example EUR, KG...). You can set up maximum fields to be displayed in the chart and what is more, you can as well set up how many items will appear when the graph will be opened in the fullscreen.
