Stacked Area Charts

Stacked area charts show data as an area under a line that connects data points. They are similar to line charts and express changes across time.

Stacked area charts have the following sections:

  • Metrics
  • View by
  • Stack by
  • Configuration

In stacked area charts, you can also:

  • Display the values as a percentage.

    To do so, add a date or an attribute to the View by section.

  • Stack the chart by attributes.

    To add attributes to the Stack by section, you must have only one item in the Metrics section.

    For details on how to stack multiple metrics, see Stack metrics.

You can add a single metric or multiple metrics to create different types of area charts. See the table for details:

Table Key: ✅ = Add attributes. ❌ = Do not add attributes. N/A = Attributes not supported.
