Custom reports - Timeseries charts

Timeseries graphs are created by plotting an aggregated value (either a count or a statistic, such as sum or average) on a timeline. The values are aggregated using time intervals based on the time range in the data being plotted.

To create a time series graph:

  1. Go to the Insights portal -

  2. On the left-hand side panel click on Custom Reports > In the drop-down choose New Report. Using the Custom reports drop-down you can also view and edit existing reports.

  1. In the pop-up window, create a name for your report

  2. On the new page, in the top right hand side of the page click on the EDIT button

  1. The chart will default to show Total logins for All Users for the last 7 days, but you can change the default view using the Date range filter in the report creation page:

  1. In the ADD WIDGET > drop-down choose TIMESERIES

When creating a time series chart, you will be able to customise the following fields:
