I hope everyone's doing well! I wanted to share a solution to an issue I faced last night—something I think could help many of you, especially if you've been stuck like me, looking for ways to visualize your data using radar/spider plots.
In my line of work (and I’m sure it’s the same for many of you), I frequently need to compile multi-dimensional profiles—think student grades across multiple subjects, or sales metrics across different KPIs. Pie charts and bar graphs are good but don't quite capture the essence when you have to look at 5 or more variables simultaneously. I've always felt that Radar Charts could be the perfect solution for these multi-faceted profiles.
After a bit of tinkering and some late-night coding, I came up with an Airtable base that generates radar charts directly from your records. I found this incredibly useful for embedding in reports and using in the Page Designer block for quick presentations.
📌How it Works
1️⃣The DataTable table is where you can input the metrics for your radar chart, with fields like Name, Var1 to Var5, and a special ChartAttachment field. 2️⃣ The INSTRUCTIONS table contains the pre-installed script and other helpful guides to get you started. 3️⃣ Just select a record and run the script. Your radar chart will be generated and attached to the ChartAttachment field.
