New and enhanced chart features
Like a Jimi Hendrix album there's a lot going on here. Up to 4 elements can be visualised simultaneously using X-Position, Y-Position, Size and Colour. These can then be set in motion using the Play button. Enjoy the loop.
Combo or Bar Line
Combo Bar line graphs display result sets graphically with Bars used to categorise activities and Lines used to show cumulative. Typically there is a left Y Axis for the Bar values and a right Y Axis for Line values because the accumulation values are way bigger than the category values.
A client asked if we could do Pareto Charts as a way to apply the 80/20 rule to Sales and Gross Profit. This was while we were working on Combo charts and so Developer Mark said why not. The result is a really useful visualisation showing what elements contribute the most. The example below shows the contribution each Item Type makes to Total Sales as a %. It clearly shows that 80% of sales are contributed by the top 3 selling Item Types.
The left Y Axis show the bar values and the right Y Axis the contribution percentage.
All these chart types can be incorporated into a dashboard.
