A bar visualization can help you quickly tell a story about your data by highlighting important information using horizontal bars.
Before you begin, you must enroll in the Reporting Canvas beta. For more information, see Reporting Canvas beta: overview.
All of your changes are saved automatically as you build and edit the blocks in your report.
Begin by adding a visualization block with the Bar visualization type to a report, as explained in Add or edit a visualization block in Reporting Canvas.
Click the Edit visualization icon in the upper-right corner of the visualization, then do any of the following.
On the Settings tab:
Switch to a different type of visualization. If you do this, the subsequent options on the menu might change.
Select the data that you want to depict along the vertical left edge, or Y axis of the bar visualization. The visualization compares the items on this axis according to each item on the horizontal axis.
In the left drop-down menu, select the data that you want to depict along the horizontal, or X axis. The items on this axis display as comparative bars, based on their values.
In the right drop-down menu, select how you would like the visualization to calculate and display the values along the horizontal axis:
|+ Add value||Add another field that you want to track along the horizontal axis.|
On the Data tab:
|Data source (drop-down menu)||Change the data source for the visualization to another table on the report canvas.|
|Show Data Source||Enable this option to show the source table for the visualization on the report canvas, or disable the option to hide it.|
Click anywhere outside of the visualization settings menu to close it.
