Google Charts Component

The human brain can latch onto the meaning of images and pictures at a rate many times faster than text. Unlike plain text, data visualization takes complex information and boils it down to a simple, attention-grabbing image that conveys your message. With this thought, Appcino has integrated variety of interactive Google Charts with Appian. You can make these charts visually attractive by using a range of configuration options provided.

Google charts component plug-in offers support for ten(10) charts:

Combo Chart

This is a hybrid of two or more chart types. Use this chart to render a series as a different marker type from the following list: line, area, bars, candlesticks, and stepped area. It is useful to compare multiple values across one axis.

Calendar Chart

Use the calendar chart to highlight events at a glance, over a period of time such as days, months, years.


Use this chart for the hierarchical view of the data represented by color rectangle box with the area of a rectangle box indicating the scale of the measured value.

Timeline Chart

Use the timeline chart to display the usage of resources over time in chronological order. Example - The progress of a project.

Gantt Chart

Use Gantt charts for planning the projects of all sizes. These charts illustrate the start, end, and duration of the tasks within a project as well as any dependencies a task may have.

Pie Chart

Use pie charts to display data in a circular graph where each slice represents the numerical proportion. These type of charts are widely used in organizations and mass media.

Word Tree

This chart depicts multiple parallel sequences of words. It could be used to show which words most often follow or precede a target word or to show a hierarchy of terms.

Bubble Chart

A bubble chart is a variation of a scatter chart in which the data points are replaced with bubbles, and an additional dimension of the data is represented in the size of the bubbles. It is used to visualize a data set with two to four dimensions. The first two dimensions are visualized as coordinates, the third as color and the fourth as size.

Candlestick Chart

This chart is used to show an opening and closing value overlaid on top of the total variance. Candlestick charts are often used to show stock value behavior. In this chart, items, where the opening value is less than the closing value (gain), are drawn as filled boxes, and items, where the opening value is more than the closing value (loss), are drawn as hollow boxes.

Sankey Chart

This chart is a visualization used to depict a flow from one set of values to another. The things being connected are called nodes and the connections are called links. Sankeys are best used when you want to show a many-to-many mapping between two domains (e.g., universities and majors) or multiple paths through a set of stages (for instance, Google Analytics uses sankey to show how traffic flows from pages to other pages on your web site).
