Comparing Multiple Statistics

You might want to compare values for the same statistic at different time periods or compare different statistics over the same time period. In both cases you need to set the time range to display in each visualization being compared, and you might want to move the visualizations, for example to be vertically aligned. To compare the same statistic at different time periods, you need to create a copy of the visualization. When comparing different statistics over the same time period, you might want to show the data cursor.

Comparing Different Statistics Over the Same Time Period

To compare values of different statistics over the same time period, first set the time range for all visualizations to be compared.

To set the same time range for all visualizations on a sheet, select the time range shown between the arrows at the top of the sheet. Selecting that time range displays the Set Time Range dialog.

  • Set the period. Use the Period menu to select the amount of time that will be shown in the width of the graph. Choices range from five minutes to one year.

  • Set the start or end time of the period.

    • If you select the Time button, select either Start Time or End Time and use the calendar and the clock to specify that start or end time for the selected period. Data scrolling is stopped.

    • Alternatively, select the Ending Now button. Data scrolling is not stopped.

  • When you select Set, all visualizations on the sheet adjust to show the time range you specified.

If you want to rearrange the visualizations, select the Move option on a Visualization Actions menu, and select the left and right arrows to move the visualization.

You might want to select Show Data Cursor from the Sheet Actions menu, as shown in the following figure.

Comparing the Same Statistic Over Different Time Periods

To compare values of the same statistic over different time periods, set the time range one visualization, and then set a different time range for a copy of the visualization.

To set the time range for a single visualization, select the Set Time Range option on the Visualization Actions menu. The Set Time Range dialog is displayed. When you select Set, the visualization is adjusted to show the specified time period.

To create a copy of the visualization with a different time range displayed, select the Compare option on the Visualization Actions menu. The Set Time Range dialog is displayed. When you select Set, a copy of the visualization is created that shows the time range you selected.

If you want to rearrange the visualizations, select the Move option on a Visualization Actions menu, and select the left and right arrows to move the visualization.
