Chart cards display data through a variety of chart types. Select the type that best explains the significance of your data.

Page builders can add the following types of charts to pages in Anaplan:

Chart cards are synchronized with other cards on a page. If you click on a data series on a chart card (for example, a column on a column chart), other cards update to display the same data series as your selection. For example, if you select a region, other charts and grids will display the corresponding data for that region.

A board with several chart and KPI cards, a grid card. The APAC segment of the pie chart has been clicked, so other cards on the page have synchronized to show APAC data.

When you move your cursor over a data series on a chart card, its value displays in a box above the cursor. This enables you to see exact values for certain types of chart such as pie charts, which do not have a numerical axis.

Click the name of a data series in the legend to stop it displaying on a chart card. This enables you to compare specific data series on a chart card.

You can emphasize a data series on a pie chart card by clicking on a segment. This makes the segment move outwards from the center of the pie chart.

    • export a chart card as an image
