In a web application, the user has the choice of choosing daily, weekly, or monthly as the time interval along the bottom of a graph that controls the data points.

In my current revision, I say something like:
Please choose the granularity of the graph (Daily/Weekly/Monthly)

Even though our audience is reasonably technical, I'm not sure everyone will understand "granularity".

 Is there a better term I could use?
