You can also import a CSV file or Google spreadsheet, or connect to your Google Analytics account to import your data. Simply select the integration you're looking for when creating a new chart, or click Replace chart data in the inline editor of an existing chart to get started.
Add multiple columns to your charts
Need to display two or more columns of data in your charts? No problem! Click on the + symbol to the right of the last column to add an extra one.

You can customize your chart by using the inline controls as well. Simply click on the chart and you’ll find editing options based on the type of chart you are working on.
How to add legends to your charts
In order to add a legend to your chart, toggle Legend on from the chart design panel.
Once toggled on, the legend will sit above your chart. Double-clicking the legend once it appears will allow you to change the color of the text, font family, font style, font size, and choose between a dot or a square bullet style.
To make your charts even more precise, you can format data as numbers, currencies, or percentages. Click on the formatting menu at the top right-hand corner of the table to choose between number type, format, decimal points, and more.
💡 Since percentage is measured on a scale from 0 to 1, you'll need to
enter .05 to get 5% in the chart editor.
How to adjust the labels on your charts
Click on a label of your line and bar charts to open up options for the positioning behavior of the labels once the chart gets resized. The three options are:
- Auto: Labels will rotate when they need more space
- Hide: Labels will disappear once they can’t be fully displayed
- Rotate: Labels will be rotated right away
