ChartHop enables you to generate your organization's people data in a wide range of possible measurements. Using CQL, you can set custom search parameters and then view the results in a chart or graph.
From the main reports page, you can navigate to individual reports.
Figure 1: Select a report.
The report details contain high level information, as well as the ability to change share settings. You can also export your report as a Powerpoint file for use in presentations.
If needed, you can clone a report by clicking clone. You can delete a report by clicking delete.
Figure 2: Report details.
You can filter the data represented on the charts in your report by manipulating the interval, date range, chosen scenario, or by entering CQL in the filter bar.
Figure 3: Filter report data.
Below the filter options, you'll find the actual visualizations generated within your chosen report. Each chart displays a particular cross-section of data.

The best way to quickly set up a chart that examines ChartHop data is by using the Data Explorer. The Data Explorer allows you to leverage the data in ChartHop using CQL, then visualize that data with a chart of your choice. Charts created with the Data Explorer can be saved to a new or existing report for later use.

In the Reports section, there are seven different charts offered to view displayed data, each represented by an icon as follows.
Figure 6: Select chart type.
This drop-down field lists all built-in and custom-fields within your organization. The option selected from this menu will be the primary measurement in your report. For our example, we've chosen Headcount.
The second option selects the aggregate function that you want to apply to the primary metric, for example, total vs mean. The available aggregates will change depending on what you are measuring.
Figure 7: Decide what to measure.
The comparison dropdown gives the report another data point to visualize. For example, by measuring Total Jobs, and choosing Department as the comparison, the chart will show total jobs per department across time.
Figure 8: Choose a comparison.
Selecting an interval gives ChartHop a precise time frame to measure the data. As you can see, when we choose a month for our interval and 1/1/2020-12/30/2020 for our date period, those values are shown on the x-axis.
Figure 9: Select interval and scenario.
Viewing a report with a scenario allows you to forecast your organization's development according to the proposed hiring, compensation, or promotion plan you have mapped out. To view how your scenario will affect your organization per the report, select the desired option from the Scenario drop-down menu.
Clicking the Save To Report button will bring up a modal containing custom fields for labeling, filtering, sharing, and setting the privacy level of your new report.
Figure 10: Save to report.
After giving your new visual chart a label, the Add To Report drop-down allows you to create an entirely new report or add your chart to an existing report.
Figure 11: Add to report.
After saving your chart, it will appear under the Reports tab, within the determined Report Label.
Alternatively, suppose you are curating a new set of data. In that case, you can save your chart as a New Report by selecting the Create new report... option from the Save to Report modal.

Creating reports within ChartHop is a fantastic tool to compile your people data into stunning visualizations and share them within your organization. When a report contains sensitive data such as compensation or demographic information, it is vital to make sure that you have configured your visibility and user sharing settings correctly. In this guide, you will learn how to share and assign ownership of reports.
Once you have created your report, you can share the report by clicking the Share button. The modal that appears provides the details on whom you are sharing the report and visible data.
Within the drop-down selector beneath the Shared With heading, you will find four different options to determine who can access the report.
Two data-sharing options determine, of those who have access to the report, how much is visible.
User sharing within reports allows you to invite users within your organization to see your reports, edit data, or share ownership of created reports. Sharing reports can be a useful tool if you have a confidential report OR an org public report that requires a hand-selected list of contributors. To bring in a user to your report, click the Add users drop-down below the owner's name.
Once you have selected contributors, you can determine their access as Owner, Edit, or View by clicking from the box to the right of their name.
