Explore - Line Chart

Click on the add line chart iconto generate a line chart on the canvas. Upon creation, the line chart will open to the properties panel and move your cursor to the dimension field, into which you will be able to add your dimension value by typing it in or selecting it from the dropdown.
You have multiple sorting options for line charts, including alphabetical, numeric, and by Y-value.

By default, your metric will be a count of all the dimensional records, i.e. count(1). You can change this metric to your desired calculation using the metric interface.

Note: if your dimension is a key field, the record count can be distorted and unexpected due to key fields being present in multiple tables.

Change the distance between the points of the line by dragging the “point width” slider to the right or left. This is will elongate the line to give a more granular trend view.

You can trellis any chart by any dimension to generate small multiples across rows, columns, or both.
