Adding notes to a chart

Creating, adding and saving notes to a chart

As well as creating simple annotations and descriptions, notes can be used to offer explanations of particular trends or unusual data points (outliers). For example, an unusually high influx of patients on a particular day may affect the results, causing an outlier.

Creating a note

2. Select the data point that you wish to annotate and then click 'Add Note'.
