Horizontal bars

In general, dimensions of the dataset represent categories that are placed on the horizontal axis (and therefore the X shelf). The result set is rendered as a vertical bar chart. If your business requirements include the use of a horizontal bar chart, CDP Data Visualization makes it very easy to switch from an existing vertical bar chart to a horizontal one.

This example uses the visual previously created in Bars. Clone it, and make the changes to the duplicate visual.

To use this visual to create a horizontal bar chart, follow these steps.

  1. Click the (switch) icon between the X Axis and Y Axis shelves.

    The graph has changed, with country categories on the Y axis and horizontal bars.

  3. Rename the visual.
  4. At the top left corner of the Dashboard Designer, click SAVE.
