Adding chart items

After any operation that finds records in the Information Store - Quick Search, Visual Query, or Expand with Conditions - you can create chart items that contain copies of those records. You can then use these items as the starting point for more searches of the Information Store.

Before you can use Analyst's Notebook tools to analyze search results, you must copy the records that they represent to a chart. Each chart item that you create in this way contains a copy of the record from the Information Store that provides a snapshot of the information at the time of charting. If the data in the Information Store is updated after you copy a record and you want that chart to reflect that change, you must use the Get Changes feature to update the records on the chart.
