Adding charts on a dashboard

Introduction

Dashboards contain data that can be grouped in different levels by using charts.

Charts versus Legacy charts

In UiPath Process Mining 2020.10 some chart types have a completely new User Interface that makes it easier to create them. Charts created in previous UiPath Process Mining versions are now available as Legacy charts. The new charts load up much faster than their Legacy chart counterparts. Moreover, the new charts can be cached in the disk cache, which makes sure that the initial loading times of these charts are significantly reduced as well.

📘

Note:

Legacy charts will be deprecated in future versions of UiPath Process Mining. For Bar charts, History charts and Distribution charts, you are strongly advised to use the new chart types to get the associated benefits. Moreover, you should consider converting current legacy charts to new charts.

See Migrating Legacy Charts to New Charts

For the chart types that do not have a new-style variant yet, you can still use their legacy versions, for example Gantt charts, or detail lists or pie charts.

See Legacy Charts
