The Charts page contains some predefined charts for graphing your data. (Only data for the current company will be charted.)
Every chart that you wish to display must be limited to a date range. Use the two calendars to specify the range desired. By default, these calendars will be set to the current year.
Monthly / Yearly
Line and bar charts may be displayed in a month-by-month or year-by-year basis. This option does not have any effect on pie charts.
Show Values / Hide Values
Data value labels may be displayed for the points or pie segments of the chart. For pie charts, a percentage will always be displayed.
3D / Flat
Charts may be displayed either three-dimensionally or two-dimensionally.
For pie charts, use the corresponding arrows to rotate the pie to the desired vantage point. (This is helpful for when value labels overlap each other.)
