What is a T chart?

T charts are used to compare two facets of a given topic by listing details about it in two separate columns. The topic can be anything at all – an idea, a proposal, or something that you’re writing or researching. Students, teachers, and professionals alike can use a T-chart to compare pros and cons, advantages and disadvantages, or facts and opinions.

Why use T charts?

T-charts overview

T-charts can be used as a simple graphic organizer where your information is put together side by side. Using this, you can quickly draw connections between two different details, as well as find any differences and similarities between them. This also makes it easier for your audience to digest your information when you’re presenting.

By listing points side by side like this, it gives you and your readers a quick, at-a-glance overview of the facts being presented and helps to make decisions or arrive at conclusions quicker and easier.

Organize thoughts and ideas to a T

Customize your T-chart design on our whiteboard

Our design tools make creating T-charts easy. Just choose a design from our templates library then customize it in your whiteboard. Quickly add lines, shapes, and text using our keyboard shortcuts, with more actions available when you type “/”. With our collaborative tools—sticky notes(opens in a new tab or window), comments, and a built-in timer—work on your T-chart with teams, then come back anytime for any changes.

Assign clear and elegant labels

Edit the font style of your T-chart label

Customize default titles and headings text boxes from your T-chart template to make them truly yours. Simply click and edit them to change their font style, size, and color via the Text tool in the sidebar. You can also choose to add Bold, Italic or Underline formatting to your text or align it any way you wish—left, right or center.

Add some style to your T chart
