Customize your chart 

Once you've selected your chart type, you can begin to set-up your chart. Let's go over a few examples of the most popular charts. 


  • Pie Chart

For the pie chart, select the labels based on the different column types on your board. Let's say we are managing creative requests. We can choose to structure the chart based on the request category to see the request numbers broken down by category:




You can also pick the values taken from the Numbers Columns on your board to showcase. For example, we can easily see the average amount of kilometers for each delivery vehicle:




  • Bar graph

For the bar graph, select the x-axis from the different column types in your board. We can for example select "Status", meaning that the x-axis of the chart will reflect the different status labels in our Status Column:




For the y-axis, select the numerical value or any of the other columns on your board. You can select as many numerical values as you want. For example, we are comparing the amount of books in stock to the total amount of orders requested:



  • 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:




To customize your graph even more, you can order the x and y axis by ascending or descending. Simply choose your preferences under "Sort by" in the "More settings" section:



  • 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 kilometers for each category. Once done, we can stack it by the person making the delivery:




Note: The Progress Tracking column on your board is not supported when configuring your chart settings and will not appear in the column type dropdown options


Configure a multi board Y-Axis setting 

If you have multiple boards with number columns and you would like to create comparative data on a Bar graph or Line graph, this setting is perfect for you! To utilize this feature, ensure that you are using our new dashboard engine. Select the three dots in the top right-hand corner of your Dashboard and select "Upgrade to new dashboard engine".

Once you've added a chart to your dashboard, and connected your boards, adjust the settings of the chart by clicking on the three dots in the top right-hand corner of the widget, and select "Settings".

Note: Only the Bar graph and Line graph can be used for the multi board Y-Axis setting. For the Y-Axis columns, only columns with numerical values can be selected, such as the Numbers, Formula, and Time Tracking Columns. 


Once in the settings, click on the dropdown arrow next to the "Y-Axis" tab. Ensure that the "All at once" option is selected and choose the column that exists across your boards. You will then be able to see the comparative data from the same columns, across your boards.

Note: In order to use the multi board y-axis setting, ensure that you have more than one board connected to the dashboard, and that the boards have column matching


Add a benchmark and cumulative data

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 a 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 sales progression over each quarter or year:



Add a calculation 

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!


Sort your chart

You can customize your graph even more by choosing the order of your values and whether you want  them ascending or descending visually on your graph:



Group your dates

You can click on the "Choose Groups " dropdown menu to decide how you would like the dates grouped by!
