In order to display graphs populated by your CCB data, you will need to feature the
Graphs web part on the site.
Once the web part is featured on the site, you can begin the administration of the graph settings.
To begin, click on the
Graphs web part heading to open the Graph Management window.
From this window, you will be able to
Create Folders, plus
Manage Reflection Questions,
Manage Support for Improvement URL,
Manage Templates, and perform
Graphs can be organized into folders by using drag-and-drop. To create a folder: click on "Create Folder" and enter the name for the folder. To move a graph into that folder: click on the name of the graph and hold down the mouse to drag it over the folder where you want it to move. When you let up on the mouse you will see options to move, create a copy or cancel.
Recommended questions are provided based on the graph type and the data source; however, using
Manage Reflection Questions, administrators can adjust the questions displayed to customize them for unique project needs.
Support for Improvement provides helpful guidance and links for solving problems and dilemmas documenters may be encountering in their work. Using
Manage Supports for Improvement, administrators can customize the guidance displayed by linking to a customized web page that has been tailored with guidance for documenters of their initiative.
If you find that you (or users on your site) are creating similar graphs, you can create a template for use with future graphs. Selecting Manage Templates will take you to a page where you can view graphs that have already been created, or create a new template by selecting Create Template. This will walk you through the process of creating a graph, which can be saved as a template. You can also select
Save As Template for any existing graph.
Users will be able to choose a graph template when they select Create Graph from the main graphs page, then Create graph from template.
Here, you can designate default settings that will determine how graphs are displayed when users first create a graph (without further customization). You may keep the default system settings or you may customize settings unique to graphs created for your initiative.
Use System Settings allows site administrators to use preset system settings for the graphs. Once users have created a graph, even if they have used the pre-set system settings, they can always customize by selecting
If you select
No under Use
System Settings, you will be able to define the default settings for various graph types. Customizations may include changing the default start and stop date and how the data is displayed.
Accomplishment Graph Types will be set for the individual questions used within the CCB Form.
Once graphs have been created, site administrators have the ability to display these graphs on their WorkStation/CCB. This is an especially valuable tool for highlighting the work of community and research partners.
Select the graph to display from the drop-down menu.
Once selected, click Display Graph.
