To quickly get started building charts, try our Data Explorer tour. The tour is accessible via Help > Setup Guide in the top navigation of your Chartio account.
For an overview of building a basic chart, see our Quick Start Guide.
Have a quick query you want to try out, but don’t necessarily want to save it to a dashboard? Click the Explore button in the top navigation to open a Data Explorer window that is not attached to any dashboard. If you decide you want to save your chart to a dashboard, you’ll have the option to do so via the Save menu.
The Data Explorer has three main sections:
- The Dataset Interface is where you build your queries. Add a dataset for each separate query you want to include in your chart.
- The Data Pipeline allows you to join datasets and apply transformations to your data results.
- The Chart Preview contains chart settings and other visualization options.
