Insights Cards can be presented in different visualizations; Headline, Top Content, Bar Chart, Pie Chart, and Line Chart. Since Insights Cards consider data before visuals you can click Creating and Editing Insights Cards to learn how to create card content. Once you get to the visualization section you will see links to creating all three card types, here we'll be creating a Headline Card visualization.

Headline cards allow you to package several metrics into a compact and customizable view. The headline and subheading data you choose to display will reflect the Filter(s) and Calculation(s) of the card. Headline cards display a brief summary of data and are a great high-level visual, but they don't stop at a broad view. Clicking on a Headline card will open a right drawer that provides further details.
