What are the use cases?
Having charts in Notion unlocks many possibilities for you. You can analyze your spending behavior by turning that expenses tracker into a chart. You can also use it to visualize productivity, finances, sales, or any other data you already have in Notion.

ChartBase is a tool that allows you to create graphs from your Notion tables without coding. You simply select the table you want to graph, and the tool will create a graph for you. It also allows you to customize the graph by adding custom, colors, filter and sort and many other features.
