3. Context menu [back to top]

Activate the Edit mode to change the name of your widget, copy the widget to another page or move it. Refresh the content of your widget, to make sure it's up to date. You might notice some delay here.
Enter our Settings pane or delete the entire widget (careful: there's no recovery possible).
The final option allows you to access the Help section (this very article).
4. General settings [back to top]
There are two ways to change the title of your widget: double-click the title or change it from the General Settings pane.
You can change the icon by uploading your own or selecting one from our database. Click Done to save your changes.
5. Advanced settings [back to top]
In the Advanced settings pane, you select the Chart type that best matches your data:
- Area chart: shows up to 3 series in an overlapping (non-stacked) area chart.
- Line chart: shows up to 3 series as lines.
- Bar chart: shows up to 3 series as horizontal bars.
- Column chart: shows up to 3 series as vertical bars.
- Pie chart: shows one data series as a pie chart.

Other settings you can decide here: display the chart with or without legend or borders. The chart will also display the sum total of your data and a trend per data series.
The map chart type expects the first column to contain either:
- Country names in English (e.g., Belgium, Australia, United States);
- A 2-letter country code (according to ISO 3166-1 alpha 2)
