Once you drag a the custom bar chart to the dashboard designer canvas, hover over the widget and click the edit icon.  Edit icon should display the following configuration screen for the widget:

Let's say we want the graph to display the top 10 users with most activity from FlowWright as a bar graph.  Then select an existing connection to the FlowWright database, or if a connection doesn't exist, create one and select it.

Enter the following SQL statement for the SQL query input field:

SELECT TOP 10 U.deExternalUserFullName as Name, COUNT(H.entryID) AS numOfHighestActivity 

FROM deItemHistory H INNER JOIN deUsers U ON U.deUserID=H.itemID 

GROUP BY H.itemID,U.deExternalUserFullName ORDER BY numOfHighestActivity DESC
