How do I create a chart that repeats?

How do I create a chart that repeats?

When you save a chart in a new or existing data exploration, you can create a repeating chart. A repeating chart automatically generates individual charts for each item within a category. You can quickly generate charts that display the same metric for each school, subject, course, etc., at your institution.

Saved charts, including repeating charts, display in your Elevate K-12 Analytics Visuals library. You can view repeating charts in a dashboard. When you add a repeating chart to a dashboard, the chart appears multiple times on the dashboard, once for every value in the category you selected. You can also publish repeating charts, send them to others at your institution, and customize their display. Learn more about working with charts in Elevate K-12 Analytics.
