Create an XY Plot Chart in Innoslate.


Creating an X/Y Plot chart

Step 1: Navigate to ‘Charts Dashboard’, then click on ‘New Chart’



Step 2: Choose ‘XY Plot’, give the root asset a name or number, then click ‘Next’, then click ‘Finish’.



Step 3: Click on the ‘Import’ button found in the XY Plot toolbar.



Step 4: Browse for the CSV to be imported, or drop the file into the upload box.  Decide between Entity and Non-Entity Mode. By default, Non-Entity mode is selected. To toggle between them click on the check box. Once you finish the Import that mode will be locked for that XY Plot. Once it is imported, click ‘Next’.



Step 5: Select which column to use for the X-axis and Y-axis. Also, choose whether the entities will be imported as Characteristics or Measures. Click ‘Apply’ when you are done.



Step 6: Edit and validate your data and remove any rows that should not be included in the dataset. When you are done, click ‘Apply’.



Step 7: Look over the generated preview, and click ‘Apply’.
