I have to generate charts as well. I usually use highcharts or excel to create the prototypes and then place them into photoshop (or an HTML mockup of the site) depending on what's required. In either case, unless the prototype is an examination of the chart itself, the data has not mattered much. A generic line or area chart is often sufficient. I ...

An example of how this might look shows how the area chart would work when all series are "turned on." Alternatively, you could show an initial view of the categories, and then allow ...

If I understand the problem correctly you have a graph with a particular grouping and now you want to allow users to change the grouping; add / remove data series; and, I suppose, change chart types. This is done all the time. Take a look at just about any financial page. You can use natural language to allow users to select attendance type: Show ...
