Our Chart View is a great way to see the analytics side of your workflow. See how well your team members are performing, how fast your tasks get done, how they change over time and more. Keep reading to find out how to use it.
To add a chart view, click on the "Add View" button located on the top of your board. From the resulting menu, click on "chart" as below:
Once done, you will find a bunch of different settings allowing you to customize your chart view the way you want it to be. Let's dive into these settings!
Enjoy and create beautiful charts from our chart gallery. Whether you want a pie chart, a stacked chart, or just any chart, we've got you covered! In the settings menu, pick the chart type as below:
Once you've selected your chart type, select the breakdown of your chart. Let's go over a few examples of the most popular charts.
- Pie Chart
For the pie chart, select the labels from the different column types on your board. Let's say we are managing events. We can pick the labels to be the type of events to get a better understanding of which type of events are occurring the most.
You can also pick the values. For example, if we want to see which type of event costs us the most, we will pick the value "budget". The chart will then show on which type of event we tend to spend the most.
You can also choose to display your values as an item count or as a percentage! But don't sweat over the decision, when you hover over one of the pie pieces, you'll be able to see both the item count and the percentage!
- Bar graph
For the bar graph, select the x-axis from the different column types in your board. We can for example select "group" meaning that the x axis of your chart will reflect the different groups of your board.
For the y-axis, select the numerical value or any of the other columns in your board. You can select as many numerical values as you want. For example, we want to compare the amount we actually spent per month versus the budget.
To customize your graph even more, you can order the x and y axis by ascending or descending. Simply click on "order by" and select the relevant setting.
- Line graph
For the line graph, select the x-axis from the different column types in your board. For the y-axis, select the numerical value or any of the other columns on your board. Similar to the bar graph, you can choose from the Weight by count of the items or for budgeting purposes, you can use the numbers column in your board that represents your budget.
- Stacked graph
Similar to the bar graph, you can pick your X and Y axis to reflect the information of your choice. Let's say we want to see the actual amount spent per month. We can pick the X-axis to be each month and the Y-axis to be the actual money spent.
Once done, we can stack it by the type of event. This will allow us to break down the amount spent per specific event per month:
In this view, you also have the option to display your chart as cumulative data. This is particularly useful if you want to see the progress over month. Each month will include all previous months plus the addition of the current month. For instance, if you are a sales team, this chart can be used to show progress of the sales over the quarter.
You can also add a Benchmark line to display the goal or the low/high threshold. 🙌
Interested in knowing what the average costs, time commitments, or travel time are in your groups? Maybe the sum or max in a certain column? Well, you can add a sum, average, median, min, or max calculation to your chart! It works with any type of chart and any column or group. First, choose the labels of your chart based on your board's groups or columns, and then select a Numbers Column to apply the function to. Then, just select the function you want to calculate!
For example, in the animation above, we want to calculate the average travel distance each of our delivery vehicles drives! We've selected our "Vehicle" Status Column as the 'Labels', and our "Travel Distance" Numbers Column as our 'Values', and finally, we chose to 'Average' these values. Now, we can see the average distance each vehicle drives in the pieces of our pie chart!
You can customize your graph even more by choosing the order of your values either you want it ascending or descending.
You can click on the "Group By" drop-down to decide if you would like the dates to be grouped by Day, Week, Month, Quarter, or Year.
You filter directly on your chart by using the board filters. It is a great way to display the exact information you need. Let's say we are interested to see all the tasks of this week only.
- Click on the filter icon located on the top right of your view as below:
- Select this week
- Save your filtered view for an easy access at any given time. Simply click on "save to this view" as below:
Whenever you will open your timeline view from that board, the filter will automatically be applied. 🎉
You can export your chart view to PDF/PNG/JPEG/SVG/CSV and print it :)
