There are nine charts and visualization options in trends. They're split into two categories:

  • Time series, which show you how tracked events and data points fluctuate over a time period.
  • Total value, which show the total number of tracked events or data points in any given time period.

Time series

Line chart (linear)

Linear plot

The line chart is a simple, linear trend plot with time on the X-axis and each data point corresponding to the grouping value you've chosen.

Additional series or breakdowns you add to a line chart will appear as separate lines on the chart.

Line chart (cumulative)

Cumulative plot

The cumulative plot displays a running tally of each series over the given time period.

This is useful for understanding how quickly an event or data point is growing, such as whether the number of people signing up for your product is growing exponentially or leveling off.

Bar chart

Time bar chart

The time series bar chart displays the value of a series over time. This plot shows the exact same information as the linear chart, but in a slightly different visual manner.

Additional series or breakdowns you add to a bar chart will appear stacked, so you can see how much each property or series contributes to the total number.

Area chart

Area chart

Area charts are a twist on the line chart. When you add a breakdown, or multiple series, area charts behave like a stacked bar chart, but render the data in a line chart showing how each data point contributes to the total.

Total value


Total value

Shows the total of events or data points during the given period. Tick the "Compared to previous period" option to add a percentage comparison.

This option is only available when there's just one series (or formula and no breakdowns added to the insight.

Bar Chart

Value bar chart

Displays the total value of a series over the entire date range. This means that this type of plot has no option for grouping, as it doesn't display data over time.

Try using a breakdown in combination with this chart type to see a list of the top property values, or add multiple series to see how they compare.


Table chart

The table view displays the raw numerical values of a series over the entire date range.


Pie chart

The pie chart shows the relative distribution of the values of different series or breakdowns over the entire date range.

World map

World map chart

The world map chart displays values in an interactive map of the world, broken down by country code. This display option can't be selected if you're already breaking down by a property other than country code.

Trends support two types of filters : Inline filters – only apply to a specific series in your insight. Filter groups – global filters that apply to the whole insight. Inline filters only support AND operators – i.e. all filter conditions must be met for an event or user to be included. Filter groups support AND and OR operators – i.e. events will be included if one or both of the filter conditions are met. Configuring filters Filters are comprised of three elements, a property, an…
