You can create a plot of multiple time series with the same sampling times, divided into consecutive groups.

To create a plot of overlaid consecutive time series, you must use a worksheet that contains multiple columns of time series data where each column is a group, plus at least one column of categorical data for grouping where categories are consecutive.
