How To Use The Chart Element

To start with this Element, just add it to your desired Column. Charts can be simple, and they can be very complex. The Chart options are broken up into two sections to make the process as easy as possible. The first section is called Chart Options. Here you configure the chart by giving it a title, choosing the chart type, the labels on the X and Y axes, as well as border, fill, and other styling options.

Once you have finished configuring the chart, you need to populate it. This happens in the Chart Data section. Here you can add Value Columns and Data Sets to build your chart. Once you are happy with the final result after you have entered your data, click Save.
