Each chart tab hosts a single chart object. Each chart tab behaves identically, and is used to host a single distinct chart.
Basic Charts each have a custom GUI Charts generally follow the pattern of Label -> Value -> Seperator, where:
- Label: Represents the slice, bar, time point, or other element on the chart. Each value from the field selected as the Label field will be used to place items on the chart.
- Value: Represents the number that is displayed within each Label. The size of a pie slice, the size of a bar, or the height of a point on a line will be represented by the values of this field.
NOTE: Values MUST be aggregated numeric output! It is possible to display simple static numeric values such as 'value of user ID per user’ but the best practice is to only display aggregated data, such as a sum of all received amount or a count of all debtors, on a chart.
- Separator: Represents different charts within one chart object. This means that we can draw multiple lines, bars, or pies per time point per chart object. Without a separator you will get only one pie chart, one line, or one set of bars. Values of the separator will create distinct visual elements, such as a pie chart for every reported debtor demographic, a line for each state over time, or a bar chart with multiple bars per department, one for each company.
