Available Advanced Reporting Widgets


With Advanced Reporting and BI you can build multiple widgets within one analytics board. There are 17 types of available widgets.

Types of analytics widgets

  1. Pivot: This one might be the most useful for summarizing and analyzing large amounts of data. However, we recommend you don't add more than 70 columns to optimize performance.

  2. Pie Chart: Use a Pie Chart to display proportional data and/or percentages.

  3. Column Chart: A Column Chart can be used for comparing items and comparing data over time. The chart can include multiple values on both the X- and Y-axis.

  4. Bar Chart: Use a Bar Chart to compare many items. You can see descriptive data (e.g., categories or items) along the Y-axis and values displayed on the X-axis.

  5. Line Chart: Use a Line Chart to compare changes over the same period of time for more than one group or category.

  6. Area Chart: This one is very similar to Line Chart except that the areas under each line are colored, and it's possible to display them as stacked.

  7. Table: The Table widget displays a broader view of your data, presenting it in columns.

  8. Tree Map: The Tree Map is a multi-dimensional widget that displays hierarchical data in the form of nested rectangles.

  9. Scatter Map: Use a Scatter Maps to visualize geographical data as data points on a map. The map distinguishes data using different colors and sizes for the data points on the map.

  10. Area Map: The Area Map shows the locations of data, selected for the widget.

  11. Indicator: The Indicator widget provides various options for displaying one or two numeric values as a number, gauge, or ticker. It also provides the option to add additional titles and a color-coded indicator icon representing the value.

  12. Scatter Chart: The Scatter Chart displays the distribution of two variables on an X-axis, Y-axis, and two additional dimensions of data that are shown as colored circles scattered across the chart.

  13. Calendar Heatmap: Use a Calendar Heatmap to visualize values over days in a calendar-like view.

  14. Sunburst: The Sunburst is similar to Pie Chart but is multi-dimensional. Whereas Pie Chart combines one field and one numeric value, Sunburst can display multiple rings, one for each field.

  15. Box & Whisker Plot: Box plots are divided into four quartiles. The middle quartiles are represented by a box that contains 50% of the data and the median value. The upper and lower quartiles contain the maximum and minimum values and the remaining 50% of the data. These quartiles are represented by lines called whiskers.

  16. Polar Chart: Use a Polar Chart to compare multiple categories/variables with a spatial perspective.

  17. Funnel Chart: The Funnel Chart is a common way to show stages in a process, with the most prevalent example being a funnel representing stages in a sales process.
