Chart types

You can display the information using a number of different chart types: Bar chart (default), Stacked bar chart (available only if comparison is selected), Horizontal bar chart, Stacked horizontal bar chart (available only if comparison is selected), and Line chart.

Bin size

The bin size can be:

  1. Hour (available only for instance type graphs)
  2. Day (default bin size)
  3. Week
  4. Month

📘

This filter is only available if one of the following breakdown parameters is selected:

  • For items: Annotation date, QA date, or Last action date.
  • For instances: Created At or Updated At.

Download data

To download your data, click the download button in the top right corner. The download file is a CSV file which consists of a table with 2 columns if no comparison is selected.

  • Column 1: Breakdown parameter
  • Column 2: Calculation parameter + calculation method

The number of rows is equal to the count of breakdown parameters for each item/instance.

If you have a comparison parameter selected, the downloaded CSV file is a matrix where the rows represent the breakdown parameters and the columns represent the comparison parameters.

The data in each cell of a matrix represents the calculation parameter + the calculation method for each item/instance group of the (breakdown + comparison) parameter.
