A data series is a portion of your data set. You will pick data series that will display on your metric. This article will teach you how to do that.
Selecting Your Data
To select a data series, you'll need to be in the Edit Metric view. This is after you have pulled in a report and verified that it is the data you want.
Expand the Data Series heading in the left-hand panel of the Edit Metric view. Go ahead and click the blue Add Data button.
You can then use the mouse selector to choose your data series. You can either click on a column or row header to select that entire area, or you can click and drag to select the respective cells in the spreadsheet.
Your data series will appear in the metric view area above your data.
Formatting Your Data
To format your data, you can expand the dropdown arrow next to your data series.
Each chart type will have different formatting options. Generally, you can change the color, line thickness, and style of data labels, among other things. You can see more details by checking out this article.
You can also rename your data series by clicking in the box in the header of the data series.
If you need to edit the data series and you don't want to lose your customization and formatting, you can click the pencil icon next to the Data Series name. Clicking this will bring up the data selector for your chart.
