How to create a visualization?

  2. Choose the page in which you want to add a visualization. Learn more about creating a new page. 



  1. Click on the “Add visualization” button on the top right of the screen.


  1. You will be directed to the “Create Visualization” page, where you can set up your visualization. 

  2. Edit the name of your visualization by updating the ‘Name’ field.

  3. Choose the desired visualization type from the dropdown.

  4. Choose a suitable dataset to build your visualization from the ‘Dataset’ dropdown. Choosing the correct dataset to build the visualization is crucial.

  • Tickets dataset contains all the information at a ticket level like first response time, average response time, ticket ID and so on

  • Ticket Activity dataset contains all the information with respect to ticket updates like count of replies added, call notes added and so on

  • Ticket Lifecycle dataset contains all the information during the course of a ticket lifecycle like the statuses, categories the ticket moved, time spent in each status and so on

  • Contacts dataset has all the information about the contacts like name, tickets associated with the client and so on
