Trellis Chart Widget

By Sisense

Some data sets are too large to gain valuable insights from chart visualizations. The trellis chart widget uses the break-by dimension to split each dimension value into its own chart, providing users with an easier ability to detect anomalies and compare at a glance.

To install the Trellis Chart Widget add-on:

  1. Download the attachment.
  2. Extract the .zip folder into the plugins folder. If the folder does not exist, create it prior to extracting the .zip file.
    For V7.1 and earlier
    : C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins
    For V7.2 and later
    : C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins
  3. Refresh your dashboard.


  1. Open a dashboard and create a new widget by selecting Trellis.
  2. Add x-axis, values, and break by. You can add a hierarchy to the break by to add a drill-into option.
  3. Click Apply.


  1. Chart size:
    • Charts per row – maximum number of charts per row
    • Aspect ratio – the ratio of height per width for every chart
  2. Chart type:
    • Type of each series – Can be configured through the design panel for basic charts (bar, column, line) or by using the metadata item menu (series type: line, spline, area, etc.)
