Ability to name separate visualizations within the same report

Andrew Clauson shared this idea 8 months ago

It would be nice if we had the ability to name separate visualizations within the same report.

For instance, multiple charts across different metrics built within the same report (done this way for simplicity of maintenance, similarity of report objectives, etc.) might look very similar to one another.

When adding such charts to the dashboard, the captions "chart 1", "chart 2", etc. aren't meaningful, and the thumbnails might not be enough to determine which chart is which.

I've attached a screenshot of what I mean.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your issue.

May I ask what version of YF 9 you're on? I just tested in 9.5 and had some results that look different than I remember -

These charts had labels! Where I remembered generic or non-descriptive labels like you show.

I saw these defined as "Chart Name" on the report canvas -

So in 9.5, this looks like it's possible! As long as the charts are defined with a Chart Name on a multi-chart canvas report... maybe this is not your situation, and we need to add this "chart name" parameter for different report styles like co-displays? We might have to make a special task to look into a certain variable in this case.

Hi ANdrew,

Thanks for the reply. I realized I misspoke earlier and was re-testing; this value looks to be controlled by the "chart title" option on the Chart Builder page -

Perhaps this is what you're looking for?
