Creating a line chart

To create a line chart chart and add it into dashboard,

  1. Switch to Author dashboard mode,
  2. Find the timestamp attribute to add into the dashboard, and
    1. Double-click on the attribute, or
    2. Drag-and-drop the attribute to one of the panels

The line charts noted here are for analysis of aggregated data based on timestamp information (such as date field of a database of events). If you want to analyze changes over time with time-series attributes (data per record), please see using record time-series charts topic. Keshif's time-series visual analytics approach allows creating bump-charts, time-indexed charts, slope-charts and more.


  • To find a timestamp attribute, you can use data type filters or text search in the attribute panel.
  • Double-click first tries to insert the histogram chart on the bottom chart panel. if it's full, the charts are added to the middle panel.
