(1) To create a narrative that corresponds to a chart in your report, click the Quill icon in the Visualizations palette. Note that the example (and other examples throughout this site) will show narratives corresponding to visualizations. While in many cases, the narratives can provide context to existing visualizations, the narratives can be requested without a chart.


(2) Add the dimensions and measures that correspond to the chart you want a narrative for. In this example, we’ll create a line chart measuring Total Revenue and Total COGS over time in months. If a narrative does not immediately appear, move your cursor over the Narrative window.


 (3) Once you select at least one measure and one dimension, the narrative extension will show a prompt to "describe your data" and will give examples.


 (4) Once you select a description of your data, click the "write narrative" button and an appropriate narrative will generate.
