The chart obtains the data from the view that is selected for a record type. A chart automatically gets updated every time that you change the view in the list of records. However, if the chart has been idle for some time, we recommend that you click Refresh Chart on the Charts tab so that the chart and the list of records show the synchronized data.
You can create and attach charts to only those record types in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online that support the new ribbon interface in the Web application. This is because all of the chart controls are only present in the ribbon interface of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. For more information, see Charts (Visualizations) for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Software Development Kit.
