Smartsheet reporting and dashboard

Attached below is a screenshot of a Smartsheet dashboard that we have had set up on our project by someone else. The dashboard data is being driven by a report which is in turn being driven by a stats sheet (screenshots also attached below). I have a couple of questions in relation to setting up a different dashboard that will use a similar sort of approach:

- While creating the new SS dashboard and then selecting the chart widget, I am unable to make it display the information displayed in the report. I want the information shown in the report to reflect in the chart widget (as shown in the attached DCM Dashboard image).

- In the stats screen shot below, do you know what is the purpose of having a Rpt-Level column and the formula associated with it? 

Please ask if you don't understand the above queries. Thanks.

    Unfortunately you can't build charts off of reports. You would need to create a metrics sheet that essentially pulls the same data using cross sheet references and then use that to build your chart.


    As for the Report Level column... I am not entirely sure. I would imagine that if you looked at the report builder, it would show that you are filtering on that criteria along with the other criteria already being filtered on.
