The line chart in this example shows (a) number of calls made by a sales rep everyday, indicated by orange line (b) average number of calls during the period, indicated by green line and (c) minimum threshold / target given to the sales rep, indicated by area colored in red.

A quick look at the chart shows that the rep has made 84 calls everyday on an average, which is well above the minimum target of 60 calls a day. Looking at the area in red, the rep has fallen below target on 5 days during the period.

This data gives a good starting point for analysis and further investigation to identify what caused the drops and spikes. Also, what steps can improve the performance further. A must have chart for daily and monthly report of activities.
