Before you begin: Data widgets are the charts shown in Dashboards and Reports. There are nine different kinds of charts including pie charts, line charts, etc. In order to display data, you need to create and configure data widgets. As part of the widget creation process, you can customize what data are displayed and how they are displayed by taking advantage of widget styles. This guide walks you through the process of using styles to customize the way data are displayed with widgets.
Assumption: The guide assumes the widget you want to style already exists on a dashboard that already exists. If you don't already have a dashboard, see How to Create a Dashboard. If your dashboard doesn't already have a widget, see How to Create Widgets.
