How do I create a chart from a report?

Administrators are able to create and maintain a library of pre-defined charts that can be used for Dashboard layouts. Data for charts can be derived from four different places: reports, Dashboard layouts, Measures, and Executive Reviews. This article describes how to create a chart from a report.

Note: It is critical that the reports you select to pair with a dashboard chart are defined by a portfolio, not the work tree or work types.
