Upon the click of any series of the chart it will redirect to the AllItems page of the list, which will have the list items by which the series has been represented in the graph. We can redirect to any page to show the drill down of the data for the chart.

Upon the click of Customize your Chart will redirect to the Chart Customization Wizard.
