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 Edit and Create Insights Cards to learn how to create card content. Once you get to the visualization section you will have links to creating all four card types, here we'll be creating a Line Chart Card Visualization.

Line chart cards allow you to build a line chart displaying custom content in a pleasing visualization of data right in your dashboard. Line Chart Cards offer more than their titular graphic, they also offer itemized graph details. Hovering over data sets and lines within a line chart produces written, itemized details.

Creating a Line Chart Card

Line Chart cards require more information than Headline and Top Content cards as they produce more visualized data and offer more detail directly in the dashboard.

Card Basics

Visualization Type: Line Chart

In the Visualization section of the card editor, select Line Chart as the visualization type.

Card Summary

Click in the Add Card Summary text box to enter your subheading content. This information is a brief set of information you wanted to be relayed about the card; the text you enter will be displayed as it's written while you can include a specified data by adding subheading variables that will update with the rest of the data.

Subheading Variables

To enter subheading variables within your text, click the + button and choose from the populated list of variables based on the card's content.

Basic Styling

The subheading section allows for basic styling, including Bold, Italic, and Underlined text as well the ability to include hyperlinked data.

X and Y Axis Configuration

X Axis

The X Axis presents the data along the horizontal axis of the graph.

Dropdown options will be populated based on card content that prompts you to choose what field of data by which to group, and when available, what type within that field to display. This is the kind of data that will be represented by the lines in the chart.

You can enter a custom label for the X Axis. The label can include data variables by clicking the + button and selecting a variable that will include data that continually updates. The X Axis label will be displayed beneath the graph

Y Axis

The Y Axis presents the data along the vertical axis of the graph.

Dropdown options will be populated based on card content that prompt you to chose what metric you want measured and the type of value that will be displayed. This is how the data is calculated and measured within the chart.

You can enter a custom label for the Y Axis. The label can include data variables by clicking the + button and selecting a variable that will include data that continually updates. The Y Axis label will be displayed up the left side of the chart.

Bar Chart Underlay

You may select "I want to underlay a bar for another field on the data set" to create a bar chart with a different set of data that will underlay the line chart. The Bar Chart Underlay is visible in the chart and its data will be included in hover state details.

Bar Chart Underlay On/Off

Toggling Bar Chart Underlay on allows you to select an additional dataset to be displayed under, or behind, the line chart.

Label

The Bar Chart Underlay label will display vertically on the right side of the chart.

Metric

Select the metric by which overlay will measure; count, sum, or average.

Split Data

Split Data On/Off

Toggling Split Data on allows for the lines in your chart to be visually itemized, turning Split Data off displays your data as an individual total.

Number of Series Allowed

You can limit the number of series allowed to be represented in your chart to prevent crowded visualizations when datasets contain more information than would be visually legible.

Line Chart Tips:

-Hovering over data in your line chart will display further details, including itemized amounts.

-Clicking on the card header will produce the inspection drawer as it does for all cards, but also offers the ability to click on an individual line to display a report below with data specific to your selection. When specific information is selected and opened in the inspection drawer, an anchored legend will appear with itemized details.

-The Interactive Card feature in a line chart allows the line chart to adjust along with report changes. (You can save these changes to change the line chart card or simply close the inspection drawer to return to the original chart in the dashboard.)

-Clicking on a content type in the chart legend allows you to show/hide that content type in the chart. (Only applicable to bar charts and bar chart underlays.)

Once you have completed the visualization section, click save in the card editor to save your card. If you want to make changes to other sections of the card editor, return to Creating and Editing Insights Cards.
