Customize your graph by adding a straight line between two data points.
To create a user-defined line, above the graph, click the “EDIT GRAPH” button.
In the pop-up box that appears, select the “ADD LINE” tab. Click the “Create user-defined line.”
At the bottom of the new page that appears, click “Create user-defined line” again. Next click “Create line.”
A default trend line will appear from the first data observation to the most recent data observation.
To customize the line, (i) click the “Date start/end” box and select the year and months from the pop-up options or (ii) type values in “Value start/end” boxes.

Click the trash can button to remove the line from the graph (see box 1).
To change other line settings, you will need to click the "FORMAT" tab. NOTE: you will need to remember what number line is your User-defined line. In this example, the line number is 2.
