Chart Tweaking, Use, and Legend

Once you have loaded a customized graph you can use the options on the left of the graph to further refine your view.

The Scale section allows you to toggle the graph between Count and Amount. these show how many transactions of the selected type were performed and the total of the transactions of the selected type. Selected scale information is represented as the X-axis of the resulting chart.

The Time Unit section allows you to quickly break the graph down into other time units. Be aware that time units can make the graphs difficult to read when you select a broad time range in the Graphing Options and then select a detailed time unit from this menu. Viewing hourly data is best done with a daily graph as opposed to a WTD, MTD, or YTD report. The time unit is represented as the Y-Axis of the resulting chart.

These charts are very interactive. If you hover over any point on the chart it will provide you with pop-up details about that plotted point.

The bottom of the chart provides you with a legend for the plotted data to help you better understand your chart.

On the legend below, the greyed-out icons indicate items not included in the chart.

Working with Graphs

For each action done through the graphing options above, the system loads not only the chart that you see immediately but if you scroll down, you will see that it also loads a Snapshot Graph based on your options and a Legend/List that provides more details.

The graphs are very attractive and display income and deductions color-coded to include rebills, recurring, single, trial, chargeback, refund, void, and return transaction types. The pie chart default can be changed to a bar chart by selecting the icon at the bottom left of the screen.

Breakdown By

If you have experience with CCBill’s reporting system, you know that there’s always a way to break down reports further. With these new reports the Breakdown By happens in the pie or bar charts.

After loading the report, scroll to the bottom and locate the item on the graph that you wish to view breakdown details about, then click that item. A small Breakdown by menu pops up.

Once you select an item from the Breakdown by menu another graph will load at the bottom of the page. In this example, we have broken down hits by Region.
