  • Configure the series as necessary:

    • Give it a name and, optionally, a description.

    • Choose whether the series should be shown as a bar or a line.

      Customize the appearance of the series:

      • Pick the color that should be used for this series.

      • For a line series, check "Dashed Line" if you want the series to be represented by a dashed line rather than a solid one."

      • For a line series, check "Show Markers" if you want to display the data point markers on the line.

    • Choose whether it should be affiliated with left or right y-axis.

  • In the “Operator” drop-down field, choose which operator the calculated series should use. Depending on which you pick, various new fields will appear.

    If you chose:

    • Sum: Enter each series you want added together in the “Series” field.

    • Difference: Enter the series you want to subtract from in the “Series to subtract from” field and the series you want to subtract from the “Series to subtract” field.

    • Average: Enter each series you want to be included in the average in the “Series” field.

    • Percent: Enter the series you want as the numerator in the “Numerator Series” field and the series you want as the denominator in the “Denominator Series” field.

    • Percent Change: Enter the baseline series in the “Baseline or Original (% change from)” field and the current series in the “Actual or Current” field.
