Advanced Chart Set 1

Advanced Chart 1 Set is a component that allows you to choose from a wide range of charts that will be continuing to grow. This particular chart set is based on specific data look ups. When we introduce new data look up types with new search algorithms we will create a new component, Advanced Chart Set 2, etc.

To summarise how this chart set works in terms of data look ups. It uses a combination of the X Axis values and and the other specific value you would like to count with. You initially set the X axis and then begin to add as many counts as you like (a count is effectively a line on the graph). If you do not wish to set the specific second value in the count, you can simply opt to count everything. You may also choose to count user data instead of other values.

Note: For the Pie and Doughnut charts, because there is no X Axis, the data is not broken down by each X Axis entry, instead it simply adds all the values that would have otherwise been separated in the X Axis.

Hint: The fastest way to get started and do a test chart, assuming you have data to look up in a bloc, is to do the following: - Choose Date/Time Breakdown X Axis Option - Click "Tick to search from when the records started" - Click "Tick to search to current time" - Click "Tick if you like to search by users instead of specific data" - Add a count item, select your bloc - Choose the count option and submit This will look up all data in that Bloc and give back a daily breakdown of user activity

Time/Date Breakdown X Axis Options

Hint: Having "Tick to search from when the records started" and "Tick to search to current time" ticked is a fast way to build the chart, and also a fast way for the user to look up data. The charts have zoom features if they need to dig in further afterwards.

Adding Counts

Once you have your X Axis built you now how to start to build counts or layers onto your graph. At least one count is required. One count will represent one horizontal line, bar, or filled area in the graph, depending on the graph you choose. Without adding a count will simply have an empty graph with an X axis. Having multiple counts is useful for comparing data on the same graph, however only one is required.
