Dashboard Indicators: Time Charts  View

Column Chart - Basic
Column Charts are great for showing Values changes over time. This makes it one of the most useful charts for KPI dashboards.
Column Chart - Multiple
Multiple Column Charts group several KPIs together by time interval. This chart is useful for comparing daily or monthly values for different KPIs.
Column Chart - Stacked
Stacked column charts are great for showing a breakdown of time-based KPI data.
Line Chart - Smoothed
This is the same as a regular line chart, but the smoothed trend line is easier to follow. But, it is harder to read values form this chart.
Line Chart - Stepped
This variation on a line chart is ideal for comparing the differences between points in the chart. But, its harder to follow the data trend.
Line Chart - Multiple
Multiple line charts on the same chart is a great way to compare trend information.
Line Chart - Target
Target information is best shown as a line chart running through another chart type (like a column chart). This lets you easily see how your KPIs compare to the target value.
Point Chart
This is basically a line chart without the line. It is best used to show the variance in different interval values.
Area Chart - Basic
Area charts have the same advantages as line charts. The filled area makes the trend line more visible.
Area Chart - Smooth
This is the same as a regular area chart, but the smoothed trend line is easier to follow. But, it is harder to read values form this chart.
Area Chart - Stacked
Stacking area charts on top of each other lets you clearly see the value differences between KPIs. It is most effective when there is little data overlap.
Line Chart - Basic
Line charts are brilliant for showing trend information, and don't take up too much space. This makes them ideal for combining with other chart types.
