Use small multiples

Small multiples are copies of the same chart, each showing a different view of the same data. When you activate the small multiples feature, Insights creates a container or shelf of small visuals, presented side-by-side. Using small multiples is a way to get a holistic view of your business in an efficient and interactive way.

The following screenshots show examples of small multiples.


  • Your organization has a subscription to Calabrio Insights.
  • You have the Author permission.

  • You have created a line, bar, or pie chart that you want to multiply (for instructions, see Use line charts, Use bar charts, or Use pie charts)
