Why are there Compare Lines only on some Metric Charts?

Compare Lines are associated with the settings of Measurement Intervals. For example, the settings defined for the Daily Measurement Interval influence all existing and new Daily Metrics differently. This article covers the basic settings for Compare Lines, which can be added to the existing Charts or will appear as defaults on all newly created Metrics.

If no Compare Lines are assigned to the Measurement Interval, then none are shown on the Metric Chart with this Measurement Interval

1.

Review the available Compare Lines assigned to a specific Measurement Interval

  1. Open the Measurement Interval Editor. For this example we use Daily Measurement Interval
  2. Open the Override Compare Lines tab which contains all Compare Lines assigned specifically to the Daily Measurement Interval

2. Compare Lines settings

The Override Compare Lines tab includes 2 grids with each of them serving its specific purpose:

  • Compare Lines grid (see 2.1)
  • Standard Compare Lines grid (see 2.2)

2.1. Configure which Compare lines can be added to existing Metrics of the corresponding Measurement Interval

Compare Lines grid includes all Compare Lines that can be added to all previously created Metrics of the corresponding Measurement Interval

  1. Assign Compare Lines to a specific Measurement Interval (we use Daily Measurement Interval as an example)
  2. Open any Metric with Daily Measurement Interval
  3. Click Manage Overlays below the Chart Legend
  4. Notice that all Compare Lines assigned to the Daily Measurement Interval can be added to a Chart of any Daily Metric via the Manage Overlays function. To learn more details, see Overview of Metric Overlays

2.2. Configure which Compare lines will be defaulted for all new Metrics with corresponding Measurement Interval

Standard Compare Lines grid includes a list of all Compare Lines that will be added to any newly created Metric of the given Measurement Interval by default

  1. Assign Standard Compare Lines to a specific Measurement Interval (we use Daily Measurement Interval as an example)
  2. Create a new Metric with the Daily Measurement Interval
  3. Notice that Compare Lines assigned to Daily Measurement Interval are automatically added to this Metric

NOTE: The default Compare Lines can be deleted from the Chart via the Manage Overlays option
