Overview

Brushing allows users to restrict results in their chart by choosing to Include or Exclude certain areas. This is a far more interactive method of filtering, as the user defines what they want to see or remove by highlighting the particular area on their chart.

  

 

 

Include

Once the chart has been created, you are able to restrict results to the ones you select by:

  1. Click and drag to highlight an area on the chart
  2. Select the Keep option
  3. You will now notice that the chart has been restricted to only the values you selected in the highlighted range

 

Exclude

Once the chart has been created, you are able to remove results that you select from the chart by:

  1. Click and drag to highlight an area on the chart
  2. Select the Exclude option
  3. You will now notice that the chart has removed the values you selected in the highlighted range

 

Reset

Once the chart has been brushed, you are able to reset results by:

  1. Click and drag to highlight an area on the chart
  2. Select the Reset option
  3. You will now notice that the chart has been returned to its original state
