Area Chart Settings

Available chart settings tabs for Area charts
General Axis Color
Series Drilldown Annotation


“Chart title”, “Title font size”, “Show legend”, “Show tooltips”, and “Round tooltip” values can be found in the General section of our Chart Settings page.

Hide totals in tooltip
Available when Show tooltips is selected

When selected, it hides the Total value, which is only displayed when Stacked is selected

When selected, stacks each Area layer. This gives you a better understanding of how each group’s value contributes to the Total value at any given point

Note: When Area charts are unstacked, information may be hidden by other layers. To make the data more visible for unstacked Area charts, you can select Half opacity under the Series tab.

Sort datasets by area
Editable when Stacked is selected

Sorts the stacked Area layers from most to least area, where most is at the bottom and least is at the top


X Axis

Title”, “Show labels”, “Label steps”, “Rotate labels”, and “Label format” can be found in the Axis section of our Chart Settings page.

Y Axis

Title”, “Show labels”, “Rotate labels”,” Label format”, and “Range override” can be found in the Y Axis (Left) section of our Chart Settings page.

Changes your y-axis to show percentages

Charts with a percentage axis are sometimes called 100% stacked charts and are useful for displaying ratios without focusing on individual values.


“Background color” and “Use custom colors” can be found in the Color section of our Chart Settings page.


Linear interpolation
Choose the type of interpolation for your chart:
  • Linear: Uses the least number of data points, resulting in more jagged lines
  • Smoothed: Uses more data points than Linear interpolation, resulting in smoother lines
  • Cubic: Uses the more data points than Smoothed interpolation, resulting in more precise smooth lines
Half opacity
Reduces the opacity of area layers to 50%, making them more transparent — especially helpful for Stacked Area charts
