Dropdown options for types of tables/charts:


The data can be visualised in a number of ways:

Table: (Also know as a Pivot table)

A pivot table allows you to summarize data in multiple dimensions that you select by choosing fields to use on the x and y axis that is displayed in a table. The value displayed in the table can be many different options such as the count of items found or the sum of a particular field.

Table Bar Chart

Table with a bar chart within each line. 

Heat map: 

  • Def: A heat map is a two-dimensional representation of data in which values are represented by colors. A simple heat map provides an immediate visual summary of information. More elaborate heat maps allow the viewer to understand complex data sets.

  • Uses: use color to communicate relationships between data values that would be would be much harder to understand if presented numerically in a spreadsheet.

  • Agency example: viewing analytics data: time spent by various users per job.

  • Two types: Row heat map and Column heat map.

  • Row Heat map: Heat intensity is calculated for each cell with respect to its row only.

  • Column Heat map: Heat intensity is calculated for each cell with respect to its column only.

Line Chart

  • Def: A line graph is a graphical display of information that changes continuously over time. A line graph may also be referred to a line chart. Within a line graph, there are points connecting the data to show a continuous change.

  • Uses for agencies: Turnover over last few months. Or tracked time of users for each month.

Bar Chart

  • Def: a graph or chart that uses narrow columns of different heights to show and compare different amounts.

  • Uses for agencies: Time tracked for users over different months.

Stacked Bar Chart

  • Def: A stacked bar chart is a graph that stacks the individual bars in a particular category on top of each other. This is good to compare the totals of all the items together in a category and still see the breakdown in each category.

Area Chart

  • Def: An area chart represents the change in one or more quantities over time. It is similar to a line graph. In both area charts and line graphs, data points are plotted and then connected by line segments to show the value of a quantity at several different times.

  • Uses for agencies: line version of stacked bar chart. Same user case.

TSV Report

This is basically an Excel/CSV export option. Copy the text and paste into a blank Excel workbook. The text is a Tab Separated list of values and will also be able to be imported into other spreadsheet software.

Table with Subtotal Bar Chart


  •  Two fields on the y-axis. 

  • Expand and collapse with triangles to see subtotalled columns.

Examples of different tables/charts:
