Assigning Data

First, I need to drag the stacked area widget from the “Distribution” section of the widget menu onto my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize it by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read. This is what my stacked area widget looks like before I have assigned data to it.

Next, I am going to click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the widget. I would like my stacked area chart to display the minimum and maximum temperatures for each day of August 2018, so I am going to rename my widget accordingly. To do this, I will click the “Properties” tab and type in my stacked area chart’s new name.

Now, I am ready to assign data to my widget. After clicking the “Assign Data” tab, I will drag the “Max Temp” and “Min Temp” fields to the “Values” box and the “Date” field to the “Columns” box.
