How to chart a running total

Data Pipeline

Charting a running total of your data is easy to do in our Data Pipeline.

First, open your existing chart or create a new chart. At minimum, you’ll need the measure you’d like to keep a running total of, and a dimension. For your dimension, use a date with a time bucket of your choice. Once you’ve dragged and dropped your selections, click Select Data.

In this example, we are using the sum of Payments for the Measure, and a month of Payment Date for the Dimension.
