Quality Chart Formatting

After creating the background, you will use the data contained within the other spreadsheets to create the visual elements for the dashboard.

Organize your data: Ensure that your data is organized in a way that makes it easy to create charts and graphs. This may involve creating a pivot table or using Excel’s sorting and filtering options.

Choose the right chart type: Consider what type of chart will best represent your data. For example, a bar chart may be useful for showing the number of defects in different categories, while a pie chart may be useful for showing the proportion of defects by category.

Create charts: Once you have decided on the chart type, use Excel’s chart creation tools to create charts based on your data.

Customize the appearance: Customize the appearance of your charts and graphs to make them look professional and easy to understand.

Once you have created each visual element, copy and paste the charts, graphs, and tables from the other spreadsheets onto your dashboard.
