Creating a scatter chart

Use a scatter chart to show correlations and relationships within your data. Scatter charts make it easy to visualize how one data set (the x axis) affects the resulting data set (the y axis). For example, you could use a scatter chart to show how project cost affects return on investment (ROI).

You can also use a scatter chart to see trends and outliers at a glance.

For example, you might use a scatter chart to visualize how your team's actual ticket resolution times compare to their estimated resolution times.


Like all Quick Base charts, scatter charts are interactive; click a point on the chart to view the record(s) associated with it. You can also apply dynamic filters to scatter charts.
