- Date Popup: show the values of each line at the selected date.
- Measure Selector: control which measure should be displayed. For a compound Measure (e.g. a division), you can select up to two measures to show on the chart using the Y-axes on left and right. For example, if
Result = Revenue / DAU. You can choose 2 out of three measures to be displayed.
- Group Selector: in case of a Breakdown or Cohort analysis, the top 25 groups are returned and a maximum of 8 can be displayed on one chart. Each group has its own chart and symbol.
