Lesson 7: Graph Data

Instead of manually calculating data and building graphs, Morae creates graphs to help you share results faster, conduct more testing, and spend more time focused on solving usability issues.

In this lesson we will cover:

Graphs in Manager

You can create graphs for a single study. When creating graphs, filter the information used to create the graph and customize how the graph looks. You can save the graph settings as templates to reuse in other projects. Morae also provides a set of default graph templates.
To start working with graphs, click the Graph tab.
