An area graph is a type of chart used to show information that changes over time. Area Graph is based on Line graph with the only difference being that area under the lines are filled in Area Graph. There are numerous features available for you to customize your area graph.

The options available are:

 

Widget Heading: You can add a widget heading that would appear on top of the Y-axis in the widget. You can also insert piping using the Break by data. The widget heading allows you to give viewers an idea of what the widget depicts.

Widget Description: You can add a widget description that would appear on top of the widget. This allows you to mention details about the widget. You can make changes to alignment, text color, text size with the options available. You can also insert piping using the Break by data. The customizable options are:

    • Bold: This allows you to make your text bold
    • Text size: You can change the size of the text using this option
    • Text Color: You can manage the color of the text from this option.
    • Alignment: This option allows you to choose between three alignment options — Left, center and right.
    • Insert Piping: This option lets you pipe information. The available options are total, month, widget-time-filter and global-time-filter. The total shows you the total count of the responses, month shows you the month of widget creation, widget time filter shows you the time as per the widget.

Show Number of Response: When enabled, this option would allow you to show the total number of responses on the top left side of the widget.

Select Break By: Break by feature allows you to break your singular data into multiple sets. When you select a metric via Select Values, it creates the metric as a single unit depending upon the function you have used in the process. However, if you wish to break the data into individual variables or break the data as per certain variables, you can use Break By functions. It allows you to classify your data as per selected variables. Click here to read more.

Select Nested By: Once you have applied Break By on Metric Data, you can perform further classification of the data using Nested By. While Break By data breaks the Metric Data, you can further break into individual segments using Nested By. Read more about Nested By here.

Designs: This option lets you manage the design of the Area Graph. You can change the graph type, style, and design.

    • Style: In this, you can toggle between different types of styles available. The available options are sharp edges and rounded edges.
    • Theme: You can toggle between different themes using this option. There are a total of 6 options available, with each changing the color of the graph.

Limit: With this, you can set the limit of the number shown on the Y-axis. The minimum value lets you set the minimum value for the data on the Y-axis whereas the Maximum lets you set the maximum value.

 

Label: With this, you can manage the label of the data fields. These options help you customize the information shown regarding the data in the widget.

  • Show Zero Value: This option lets you show answer choices with values as zero. Usually, the data sets with zero value are hidden but you can enable it to be shown with this option.
  • Show Percent: When enabled, this would show the individual data set in percentage.
  • Show Count: When enabled, this would show the count data of the individual data set.

X-Axis: This option lets you manage the design for the X-axis

    • Show Axis: This option lets you disable and enable the X-axis line
    • Line Color: This option lets you change the color of the X-axis line as per your design requirements
    • Title: Using this option you can give the name to the Axis. This allows you to clearly state what the axis signifies
    • Title Color: This option lets you change the color of the title of the X-axis
    • Title Position: You can toggle between the left, center, and right positions for the title of the Axis
    • Label: Label shows you the details of the data sets on the X-axis. You can enable and disable it from here.
    • Show Ticks: Ticks are the separator between two data points on the axis. You can enable or disable this using the option

Y-Axis: This option lets you manage the design for the Y-Axis

    • Show Axis: This option lets you disable and enable the Y-axis line
    • Line Color: This option lets you change the color of the X-axis line as per your design needs
    • Title: Using this option you can give the name to the Axis, signifying what the axis represents
    • Title Color: Using this option, you can change the color of the title
    • Label: Label shows you the details of the data sets on the Y-axis.
    • Label Position: This option lets you manage the position of the label. The available options are — right, left and center
    • Grid Lines: This option lets you have a line between two data sets. For example, if your Y-axis has 0 to 10 as its labels, this option would create a grid line for every number, making it easy to comprehend your bar’s data in relation to Y-axis.
    • Show Ticks: Ticks are the separator between two data points on the axis. You can enable or disable this using the option

Show Legend: Legend refers to the metric details shown with the bar which indicate what the individual bar represents. For example, if you have Yes and No as two options, the legend is the detail which shows Yes and No and their respective color. You can toggle between four positions available — Top, Bottom, Left, and Right.

Others: There are other options available that can be customized.

    • Transpose: With this, you can alter the data shown in your widget. Transpose means to change the order. If you have only Break by applied and you apply transpose, your data would become as one metric, stacked on top of each other. If you have Break By and Nested By both applied, the data would change its order. Your Break By data would be replaced with Nested By and vice versa.
    • Show in Percentage: When enabled, you see the data in percentage form. This option is useful when you want a percentage representation of the data.
    • Decimal Places: You can select how many decimal places will be shown in the data
    • Limit Fields: This option lets you limit how many fields would be shown in the graph. Zero would mean all the fields.
    • Start Offset: The number you select here would be the number of data points removed from the X-axis. If you select 2 then two data points would be removed from the start.
    • End Offset: This works similarly to the previous option. The only difference is that the number you select here would be reflected in the data points being removed from the right side of the X-axis. If you select 2, two data points from the end would be removed.
    • Cut-Off Threshold: This allows you to set a threshold for the data on the Y-axis. The data point with data that crosses the threshold would be shown and the ones below that won’t be shown.
