Custom Charts

TrueCommand already configures most charts to report specific settings. To create a custom chart with custom settings, add a Custom Area Chart, Custom Bar Chart, or Custom Line Chart. Fill in the following options when adding a custom chart:

  • General settings: Enter a Title, Subtitle (optional), Axis label (optional), Point size, Line size, Y min (optional), and Y max (optional) for the chart. You can set Stack the values to bring data points on the chart closer together. Stack the values is helpful for charts with many different data points at the max Y value.
  • Data sources: Add data sources to the chart by expanding a category and selecting which sources you want. You can add multiple data sources to one chart.
  • Summary: This step shows all chosen values. Click SAVE to add the custom chart to the report. Click BACK to change a setting or data source.
