Custom Reports: Stacked Charts

  • Dark

Article summary

Custom Enrollment and custom Learning Plan Reports enable you to display the output in a chart. One of the chart options is a stacked chart. 

Stacked charts are similar to bar charts in that they display rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent. However, they also enable you to view different categories within each data series. In the example below, each bar represents the total number of enrollments for each user. Within each bar, the user's enrollments are colored to reflect the enrollment status.

The orientation of the bar chart is automatically determined by SmarterU based on the number of data series. If the chart contains five or fewer data series, the orientation of the bar chart is horizontal.

If the chart contains six or more data series, the orientation of the chart is vertical to make the chart easier to view. If the chart has 15 or more data series, the height of the chart will also increase to accommodate all the data series.

Understanding the Stacked Chart's Heading

A stacked chart's heading consists of the report's title and the report's filters. 

For custom Enrollment Reports, the chart's title will be in the format Enrollments by <GroupByColumn> where <GroupByColumn> is the column that you selected from the report's Group Output By setting.

For custom Learning Plan Reports, the chart's title will be in the format <Level> by <GroupByColumn> where: 

Any filters specified for the report display below the chart title.

Hidden data series categories display in gray in the legend.
