    • Use the General tab to define the chart scope:

      • Position—the position of the chart relatively to the position of other charts in the report.
      • Type—how the data should be represented: graphically or in a table.
      • Object to analyze—the type of data to be reported on (users, orders and order statuses, products, categories, etc.)
      • Value to display—the aspect to be analyzed.
      • Time interval—the analyzed periods (day, week, month, year). Is not applicable to the chart type Graphic [Pie 3D].
    • Use the other tabs to filter or limit chart content:

      • Orders
      • Statuses of orders
      • Payment methods
      • Locations
      • Users
      • Categories
      • Products

      For example, the Statuses of orders tab allows you to show statistics on orders with specific statuses only. The Products tab allows you to choose the products, the statistics of which should be represented in the chart. Statistics on the unchosen products will not be included in the chart.
