Bar Charts

Bar charts show your data in horizontal bars.

Bar charts have the following sections: Measures, View by, Stack by, and Configuration.

In column 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.

In bar charts, the data is sorted by the values of the first item in the Measures section.

In column charts, the data is sorted by the values in the View by section.
