In this article, we will explain how to create and customize a line chart. So let's get started!
A line chart is a graphical representation of a series of data points connected in a linear manner. Line charts are often used to display trends over time, and they can show multiple data series on the same chart.
Here is an example of a line chart. This line chart is used to show the sales trend over time (e.g., months or years). The x-axis represents time, and the y-axis represents the total sales for each time period. Each data point on the chart represents the total sales for a specific time period, and the line connecting the points shows the overall trend in sales.
The configuration shown illustrates how to map the time period on the x axis and the profit and sales on the y axis to generate the line chart.

- Avoid cluttering the chart with too much data or unnecessary elements
- Use a meaningful and appropriate time scale for the x-axis (e.g., days, weeks, months, years)
