Bar charts show your data in horizontal bars.
Bar charts have the following sections: Measures, View by, Stack by, and Configuration.
In bar charts, you can also:
- Display the values as a percentage.
You must add Date or attributes to the View by section.
- Stack the chart by attributes.
To add attributes to the Stack by section, you must have only a single item in the Measures section.
If you have multiple measures in the Measures section, you can stack the measures. For details, see Stack Measures.
- Compare your data to previous period or same period of the previous year.
For details, see Time over Time Comparison.
- Display a secondary x-axis at the top.
You must select the show on top axis checkbox in a measure settings.
If a bar chart is sliced by an attribute, the data is sorted by its value. If a bar chart is stacked, it is sorted by the total value of the bars.
