Visualizing Connection Data in Time Series Charts

SUMMARY Time series charts are graphical representations of your connections over time: peaks and valleys that display, depict high and low connection activity. They are useful for short-term and long-term trending of data, and you can access, navigate, and investigate connections from various perspectives.

If you previously saved a search to be the default, the results for that saved search display on the Connections page. If that search included Group By options that are selected in the Advanced View Definitions box, the Time Series chart is not available. You must clear the search criteria before you can continue.
Tip: If you use an Adblock Plus browser extension with a Mozilla Firefox web browser, the charts might not display properly. For the charts to display, you must remove the Adblock Plus browser extension. For more information about removing add-ons, see your web browser documentation.
