Highlighting trends made easy with mini charts

Mini charts, also known as sparklines, are small, simple data visualizations that provide a quick and concise summary of data.

In conjunction with other data visualizations, mini charts are useful for highlighting trends and patterns in data. Mini chart types include bar charts and line graphs that show individual data points on each table row for a given measure.



Using mini charts

In the example below, mini charts add simple - and very useful - visuals to the table. The mini chart highlights property availability clearly and simply in the table itself - without needing a separate chart or data object.
