Subject: word choice - using/manipulating/controlling charts ?

Hello, WR-L-ers,

I'm looking for a more descriptive, "better" word than "Using" in a heading, "Using the Charts".

Similar to a high-level "Navigating the Dashboard" section, this topic explains how to manipulate/use/control the charts in a SaaS dashboard. It'll cover features common to a broad swath of charts, such as zooming, time range selection, exporting data/images, filtering the displayed data based on given criteria, on so on.

(Yes, I already have the task-focused sections for *why* you'd use the charts and how to select the data so as to learn something useful because, after all, nobody sits down to the app and says, "I'd like to view a chart!")

"Using" seems vague to me, but that is what I'm describing: how to use the features. "Manipulating" and "controlling" seem more accurate, but nobody wants to be thought of as manipulative or controlling.

Thoughts?

In addition to the charts explanations, I have similar sections for "Tables" and "Reports", so your one answer will cover three scenarios :-).

Thanks,
-Monique
