Customize your chart 

Once you've selected your chart type, select the break down of your chart:

  • For the pie chart, select the labels from the different column types in your board.
  • For the bar 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 in your board. We recommend using the Weight by count of the items in your board :) For budget costs, use your numbers column that represents your budget.
  • 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. 
  • You can also view multiple y-axises in a bar or line view! This can be a great way to show comparison of actual spend versus budget across departments! Screen_Shot_2019-08-07_at_12.37.04.png
