Diagram in the administration"

Diagrams are used to visually represent data in Stratsys for different nodes. As an administrator, you have access to basic diagram settings in your Stratsys and can find them under the Diagram tab in the administration section. The settings you configure here will affect the options available to users when they use diagrams in views. These settings are divided into two sections:


Tab: Chart Templates

Under the Chart Templates tab, you have the opportunity to create templates for charts that you want to use to visualize KPIs in Stratsys. You can also mark which Chart should be the default chart in a new KPI node or in a KPI Template, which is indicated by a blue flag to the left of the chart template. .


1. Default selection of Chart Template.

Here you select which Chart Template should be the default. This is set by clicking on the Flag that is displayed.

2. Chart Name

Here the Chart Name is specified/changed.

3. Show guide lines.

In some charts, it becomes easier to read the data values if the chart contains horizontal and/or vertical guide lines.

4. Series. This shows which of the values in the chart the settings apply to. If you need more values, you add a row using "Add series +".
5. Color.

Here you choose which color should represent the value, that is, what color the bar, line or area in the series should have.

6. Bar, Line, Area.

Here you choose whether it should be a bar, line or area that represents the value.

7. Detailed settings.

Once the choice of Bar, Line or Area is made, there are further setting options.

Line and Area can be adjusted with the settings according to (A) where the line's design can be adjusted.

Bar can be chosen to be represented as Beside, Stacked or Shadowed (B).



Add Chart Template

When you start typing in the underlying grayed out chart template, it will be activated and a new grayed out chart template will be added below it. Continue as above until you have achieved the desired variation of chart templates to choose from.


Tab: Settings

Here you can make settings for the size of the chart template when it is displayed in views or reports using different node properties. But also whether, for example, empty periods should be shown or not in the charts.


If you choose to click the checkbox shown in the image below, all empty periods will be removed when displaying data in charts.



You can make changes in pixel size for Width and Height for the following parts of the charts. Click on the value you want to change, type in a new one and when you are done finish with a robust click on Save.

  • Chart Node Property in Views - Sets the width and height for charts displayed embedded directly in views
  • Chart Node Property in Reports - Specifies the width and height for a chart displayed in a report.
  • Old Chart Icon Views - Specifies the chart size for the old Node Property Diagram Page Icon.
  • Goal Achievement Node Property - Sets the size for the node property Goal Achievement Chart.


Diagram Settings in Measure Node

Charts that you find in views are linked to nodes and retrieve the data that is reported on the specific node. It is not uncommon to see nodes displaying a chart either directly in the view or when you expand the node. In these cases, the node property Diagram has been chosen, read more about Node Properties here. The image below shows such an example.


Once inside a KPI node, navigate to the Settings tab. Almost at the bottom you will find chart settings. If you click on this, a new window will open, make sure to save any changes made in the node before you press the chart icon..


NOTE! Chart settings on a KPI node are only available when the node already exists. Hence, you must first create the node, save and open it again for the chart settings to become available.


Once inside Chart Settings, there is a lot of configuration to be done that defines how the chart is visualized. It may be good to know what controls what: 

Template: The templates that you have created in the administration are now available to choose from. See here how to create a new template.

Data Interval: Depending on how the data is reported for the KPI, you can set which data should be displayed. In the case below, the Latest Outcome is selected, which means that only March 2021 is displayed since the periodicity for the KPI is set to Monthly Follow-up.

If we instead choose the data interval Quarter, we get a chart that only shows the first quarter of the year and according to the month due to the KPI's periodicity:

Y-Axes (Y1 & Y2): You can choose to set one of the columns under Series to either Y1 or Y2, where you can specify different intervals for each Y-axis.

Series: Series refers to the data columns found in the metric node. Commonly, outcomes, goals, and goal fulfillment are found, but this varies depending on what is being measured. In the image below, Outcome and Goal are included in the diagram, but you can also add Goal Fulfillment by clicking "Select Series".

You can also choose how the data column should be visualized in the diagram with the same options as steps 6 and 7 when creating a Diagram Template, although the adjustments then only apply to this specific metric.
