Create beautiful dashboards that will enable you and your team gain powerful insights into your Cascade data and help you make informed decisions.

To add a Charts widget:

  • First go to Track > Dashboards.

  • Click "Add widget".

  • Choose the "Charts widget" and choose the chart type from the following options:

    • Bar single, stacked and grouped (which we will cover in this article).

    • Pie.

    • Line.


How to set up a bar chart by type

Bar single

  • From Chart Type, select Bar chart and give your widget a name.

  • Next select Data Source. Here you can find specific goals or focus areas.

  • In Data Filters you can filter by any goal's attributes available. Learn more about Filters here.

  • In the example below I've chosen to see only goals I own or co-own by selecting 'My Goals' from the Quick Select dropdown.

  • Next select X-axis and Y-axis from the Data Arrangement section.

    • You should see your chart update automatically on the left side.

  • You can choose whether to display a legend or data labels from the Display Settings section.

  • Click Save to see the bar chart on your dashboard.

By clicking on one of the bars you'll see a breakdown of the data for each bar. For example here I'm looking at all goals that are owned by Ken Horvath.


Bar Stacked

  • Follow steps above to set up a single bar chart.

  • After, from Data Arrangement section, select break down Stacked and select Break Down By option.

    • You should see your chart update automatically on the left side.

  • Click Save to see the bar stacked chart on your dashboard.


Bar Grouped

  • Follow steps above to set up a single bar chart.

  • After, from Data Arrangement section, select break down Grouped and select Break Down By option.

    • You should see your chart update automatically on the left side.

  • Click Save to see the bar expanded chart on your dashboard.
