Charts visualize data for any combination of Scorecard items, Initiative items, and Dataset records. Charts are often shown as widgets on Dashboards, but they are also in the Charts section of Spider Impact.
Creating a chart
To create a chart, go to the Charts section and click the “New Chart” button.
From here you can name your new chart and decide what it should look like. The default chart type is Blank, but you can choose from a wide variety of example charts to get you started.
If you choose a pre-built chart example, you’ll see a fully finished version of your chart with sample data. This allows you to build visualizations based on how they look rather than focusing on getting the data exactly right from the beginning. All sample data series are marked blue.
The most popular charts are line, bar, and area charts. These three types of data series can be combined on the same chart.
Pie and donut charts visualize pieces of a whole.
Polar charts help show cycles and scientific data.
Diagram charts look best on dashboards, and they present infographic-style visualizations.
