Adding a Multi-Series Chart to a Dashboard

Our new Dashboard feature is available upon request for the initial launch phase. Please contact your Customer Success Manager if you'd like to schedule implementation with our Services team.


Resolver’s Dashboard Builder allows Administrators to build custom Dashboards using the Dashboard Data Sets published within their Org.

Before using the Dashboards feature, at least one Dashboard Data Set needs to be created and published.

The following instructions apply to Multi-Series Bar, Multi-Series Line and Multi-Series Symbol Chart Types.

Multi-series Charts present a single value in more than one Category. Users must add a single Category, Value and Series field to create something similar to a Pivot Chart. A Multi-series Chart consists of two dimensions and a measure.

All changes or edits made to a Chart are globally applied across all instances of the Chart unless you duplicate the Chart and apply changes or edits to the duplicated Chart.  

User Account Requirements

The user account you use to log into Resolver must have Administrator permission to use the Dashboard Data Set Builder.
