Allow heatgrid series selection

Yoav Chen shared this idea 7 years ago

When i build bars, columns, area and line charts i can provide several dimensions and toggle between them (series).

What i would like to have is a heat grid chart that complement these dimensions, so when i toggle between the dimension, the heat grid changes dimension accordingly (see attached images).

I can link series between charts on a dashboard and have all of them change dimension, but the heat grid stays fixed on one dimension only, which is a shame because it breaks the whole dashboard behavior.

Hi Yoav,

This is a good idea, all we would need to do is support series selection on heat grids.

Then once done, the dashboard would allow you to link via series select.

This enhancement has been logged and will keep you posted on any updates, though at this point in time, it has yet to be planned.




Having a toggle on dimensions series selection in general, rather than just on the metrics series selection that is currently available would be great as well!


Good day!

Are there any updates regarding this idea? My client wanted this kind of Series Selection behaviour with Heatgrid Charts.



Hi Paulo,

I hope all is well,

I have just looked at this in our latest 9 build to which I can see it is still not possible with this I would then want to propose that we have a remote session so that we can discuss some alternatives and get a better understanding of this idea raised.

Can I ask your availability/time zone? I am UK based.




Hi Mark!

Sorry I was not able to respond to you immediately. I already discussed this topic with my client and they are considering other type of charts with Series Selection. However, upon browsing Yellowfin's wiki about particular chart types, only the categories were mentioned.


I was hoping I can get a list or a reference in wiki which specific charts fall under the Single Series Display, Multiple Series Display and Time Series Display category.

So far, I know that Pie Chart is a Single Series Display, Bar or Line Charts are Multiple Series Display and Area Chart for Time Series Display.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,



Hey Paulo,

I hope you are well!

Just to let you know, Mark is Currently on annual leave so I thought I would get a response out to you before the weekend :)

Ok so the Wiki actually has a pretty detailed summary on each chart type -

Here we have the Chart Type Selection Wiki page which gives us a little explanation on each chart type, there is also chart type selector guide.

Also on this page you will find that you can expand the details of the chart type to see each chart available and what they are for -



Now at the bottom of the last screenshot we see 'See analytics Charts for more information'.

If you click on the link, you will then be taken to a page where you can view a wiki page per chart with much more detail for that chart -


And then Clicking on 'Heat Grid' took me here to the Wiki page for Heat Grids

Or alternative, you will also find all these pages down the left side panel of the wiki -


I hope this helps you with finding the right chart for your client! :)

Best Wishes,
