Create multi-series line chart widgets

  1. After connecting your spreadsheet to Geckoboard, click drag to select the cells you want to visualize.

    Line chart widgets require at least:

    • 1 date, string (for X-axis labels) or numeric column

    • 1 other numeric column

    click drag to select each data range you want to visualize
  2. Next, you'll see highlighted visualization options for your selection. Click the line chart icon to preview how your line chart widget will look. When you're happy with your selection, click Continue >.

    By default, Geckoboard reads the data in columns. If your data series is arranged in rows, click Switch rows and columns.

  3. Now you'll next see the widget configuration screen and a preview showing the multiple series in your line chart.
