Chart Functions

Chart functions are enabled in the Chart Builder once required field components have been added to the chart. There are currently four chart functions: Accumulation, Average, Forecast, and Trend.

To access the available functions for a report field in the Horizontal Axis or Vertical Axis panel, hover over the field until the image403.png icon displays. Click on the icon to display a menu, select Add Function to display a list of the functions that can be applied to the field, and click on a function to select it. Once a function has been selected, its parameters can be manually configured using a Series menu.

Accumulation

The Accumulation function displays an accumulative percentage of the total line on the chart, using a secondary axis.

Average

The Average function displays a line calculated as the sum of all values, divided by the number of values in a dataset.

Forecast

The Forecast function uses an algorithm to develop a forecast using any of the following options:

  • Periods Forward – specifies the number of periods into the future this function should forecast. The granularity of these periods is controlled by the overall granularity of the chart.
  • Prediction Intervals – indicates a range where the actual value is likely to fall.
  • Interval Range (if prediction intervals used) – specifies a certainty range of values to be displayed with 80%, 90%, 95%, or 99% certainty.
  • Hide Non-Forecast Results – specifies if the forecast should be displayed either for the whole dataset range OR only after the end of the dataset range.

Trend

The Trend function uses an algorithm to develop a forecast using any of the following options:

  • Confidence Intervals – indicates a range where unknown or missing values are likely to fall. 
  • Interval Range (if confidence intervals used) – specifies a certainty range of values to be displayed with 80%, 90%, 95%, or 99% certainty.
