The Item Group Sales Trend chart provides summary-level information for a selected metric and item group for a single location (or location group) across one or more years. Alternatively, the data for the selected metric can be displayed for multiple locations (or location groups) across a single year. Note: This chart supports the use of chart notes (denoted by a star-shaped data marker). 

Chart Usage 

This chart is a great trend analysis tool because it provides you with a quick way to track how well (or how poorly) all menu items associated with an item group are performing. Additionally, this chart allows you to compare historical data across multiple locations for a single year.
