Line Chart - Basic

Line charts are one of the most common and useful charts for visualizing KPIs, along with the bar chart. It is one of the most effective charts for showing trend information on directional KPIs.

Line charts are very easy to follow, and can be easily combined with other chart types.

TIPS: Due to the relatively little space they take up, line charts are great for displaying Target lines and secondary KPIs on one chart.

If you choose to show the value of each point on a line chart, remember that this can clutter up the chart. Use hover marks to only show relevant information when highlighted with a cursor.
