Stack Measures

You can stack measures for the following types of insights:

You can display:

  • Contribution of each measure to the whole displayed in numbers
  • Percentage contribution of each measure

If a chart has a secondary axis, the stacking is displayed only on the left axis.

Example 1 - Stack a single measure by an attribute

You have the sum of checkouts and you want to see how each region contributed to the yearly sum.

  1. Drag the Checkouts measure to the Measures section.
  2. Drag Date to the View by section and set it to Year.
  3. Drag Region to the Stack by section.
    The column chart displays how regions contributed in absolute numbers.
  4. (Optional) In the Stack by section, select Stack to 100% to view the contribution.
    The column chart displays how regions contributed in percentage.

Example 2 - Stack multiple measures and view them by date

You want to see how two measures contributed to the total amount. The example shows the amount of Facebook and YouTube clicks each quarter.

  1. Drag the following measures to the Measures section: FB clicks and YouTube clicks.
  2. Drag Date to the View by section and set it to Quarter.
  3. In the Stack by section:
    1. Select Stack measures to view the contribution of FB and YouTube clicks.
    2. Select also Stack to 100% to see the contribution in percentages.

   

Example 3 - View measures by two attributes

You want to compare the price of goods customers added to their carts with the price of goods they purchased. You want to view the numbers by campaign group each year.

  1. Drag the following measures to the Measures section: Cart additions and Checkouts.
  2. Drag Date and Campaign Group to the View by section.
  3. Set the Date to Year.

Example 4 - Stack multiple measures, add a secondary axis, and view by date

You want to compare the amount of emails you sent with the number of emails that were delivered. You also want to compare it to the number of emails that customers actually opened and to compare the trend for each quarter.
