Designing Charts for Infolets

Use the title and subtitle in charts to show static context.

There are six types of charts that you can use in infolets:

  • Bar—Displays a graphical summary of multiple data values for comparison purposes. Bar charts can be plotted vertically or horizontally. Up to eight bars are recommended for bar chart infolets.

  • Column—Displays stacked bars that represent different data sets on top of each other. The height of the resulting bar shows the combined result of the data sets.

  • Pie—A circular graph which is divided into slices to compare data sets to one another. Up to six slices are recommended for pie chart infolets.

  • Doughnut—A circular graph which is divided into segments to compare data sets to one another. The blank center displays the sum of all data sets. Up to six segment values are recommended for doughnut chart infolets.

  • Line—Use to visualize a trend in data over intervals of time.

  • Tile—Lets you select specific values from a data set to display. No more than three values are recommended for tile chart infolets.


    Tile charts can only use the 1x1 size. You cannot resize an infolet using the tile chart until the chart type is changed. If you drag and drop a tile chart to an infolet that is greater than 1x1, you will be prompted to change either the size of the infolet or the chart type.
