What is a Table Chart?

What is a Table Chart?

Table charts are visual representations of data arranged in rows and columns. Throughout all forms of communication and research, tables are used extensively to store, analyze, compare, and present data. Table charts are commonly used in business and financial analysis, as well as in scientific and technical research.

When Can Teams Collaboratively Use a Table Chart to Organize & Gather Information?

Here are a few ways a team can use a table chart to collaboratively organize information:

  • Tracking tasks: A team can use a table chart to track tasks and their status. The table can include columns for task name, assigned team member, due date, and status (e.g., not started, in progress, completed). This can help to ensure that everyone is aware of their responsibilities and the status of each task.

  • Comparing data: A table chart can be used to compare data from different sources. For example, a team can create a table with columns for data from different time periods or locations, allowing them to easily compare and analyze the data.

  • Budgeting: A table chart can be used to create and manage a budget. The table can include columns for budget categories, actual and projected expenses, and notes on any budget changes or concerns.

  • Decision-making: A table chart can also be used to facilitate decision-making. The team can create a table with columns for each option being considered, along with relevant criteria and a rating system for each option. This approach can help to ensure that decisions are made based on objective criteria rather than personal opinions.

  • Project management: A table chart can be a powerful tool for project management. The team can create a table with columns for project milestones, assigned team members, due dates, and status. This approach can help to ensure that the project is progressing as planned and that everyone is aware of their responsibilities.

  6. Find the changes that the collaborators made via the multi-cursors on the canvas in real-time or via the version history. In case you want to revert to a previous iteration, select the version to apply the changes.

  7. Gather feedback and discuss with Creately’s in-line commenting.

  8. Once finalized, use Google/Microsoft add-ons, embed in an email, website, or export the table chart in various formats including CSV, SVG, PDF, PNG, and many more.

When to use table charts?

Tables are usually used to represent large amounts of quantitative or qualitative data in a summarized, easy to understand way. You can use tables when you want to;

  • Quickly uncover patterns or trends in data.
  • Enable readers to look up specific information that applies to them such as location, age, income, etc.
  • Make decisions such as deciding the best interest rate, the best price, or the best job, based on precise numbers.
  • Compare data or show ranking in data.
How to create better table charts?

Here are some best practices that you may consider to create better table charts.

  • Use a limited number of columns. The lesser the columns are the easier it is to read.
  • Instead use more rows to show numbers as it’s easier to skim through data that is presented vertically.
  • Use zebra shading or color every second column gray to make it easier to read if your table chart has many columns.
  • If your table has a fewer number of rows, use a wide layout, whereas you can use a more compact layout for a table with a lot of rows.
  • Use colors to highlight important information in your table.
