Report Builder - Charts step

Charts are the graphic equivalent of tables and cross tab tables. BMC Remedy Smart Reporting has a very powerful and easy-to-use charting feature which enables you to produce sophisticated and visually appealing charts to display a simple summary of your data or to represent complex relationships within it.

With BMC Remedy Smart Reporting, once you have selected the data to be used in the report, you can visualize this data in many ways simply by altering the attributes that you use in the chart.

After completing the Create and Data steps of report creation, add charts to visualize your report data in many ways simply by altering the attributes that you use in the chart.

The following videos explain more about the Charts option.
