Shelves for bars

Overview of shelves for CDP Data Visualization Bar visuals.

A bar visual has the following shelves:

X Axis

This is conceptually the X axis. Use a Dimension for horizontal bars or a Measure for vertical bars.

When using multiple fields, the last field defines the axis, while the preceding fields trellis the graph in columns.

Y Axis

This is conceptually the Y axis. Use a Measure for horizontal bars or a Dimension for vertical bars.

When using multiple fields, the last field defines the axis, while the preceding fields trellis the graph in rows.

Colors

To stack bars by category, add a Dimension field to this shelf.

This shelf displays only one field on the graph. Additional fields appear only in the Tooltip.

Tooltips

Add Measure fields from the Data menu for additional information in the graph's Tooltip.

This shelf accepts multiple fields.

Drill
