Chart showing week by week data

Hi,

I would like to create a chart having the number of changes on y axis against each week on the x axis.

Ideally, I would like the week to start from Monday and display as: 11/10/2021, 18/10/2021

How can this be achieved?

I have set the starting week as Monday in Admin > Config > Time and Region settings, and also tried to plot a time series chart (continuous, fill in zero for null values) but faced the below issues:

- it displays the date of the starting week as being a Thursday

- Over a 1 yr time frame, it displays the dates fortnightly

Anything I am missing here?

Or any other way I can do this? I've tried using the week calculated field but that also doesn't work in that it only display the week number, and not the actual date.

Thanks,

Nick

Hi,

Please refer to the attached line chart.

It seems the date on the tooltip is ok, but are we able to change the date on the y-axis so that it shows the date for every monday?

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your assistance, and sorry for my delayed response.

In another use case, let's say we are charting the data for the whole year of 2021 and the first data point is in Feb. In this case, the chart starts from Feb, instead of showing the zero data points from 1st Jan all the way to the first data point.

Is it possible to add this to the idea?

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Simon,

Attached screenshot showing the above.

I think it's just a cosmetic issue where the line is not drawn from (0,0) to the first data point (6/6/2021).

Chart is from 1/1/2015.

Thanks,

Thanks Simon.

This bit is a bit confusing:

"The way that I see it in this example, is that the data would actually start from 2015-01-01, not from January as you are requesting"

I think you meant data would actually start from June if I understand correctly?

For the workaround though, do you have an example you could share by any chance? Off the top of my head, are you are suggesting to create a fixed start and end date, and join this to the existing view ? But then, how are we to report on 1 date field which would include the fixed start/end date and the ones coming from the db?

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Simon,

With "In your example, your filter is from 2015-01-01 to the current date, meaning that there would be NULL data shown on your chart all the way back from 2015-01-01."

By interpolation, I guess you are saying it will display a chart between the 2 min/max data points that is not NULL.

ie. instead of drawing a line from 0,0 being 2015-01-01, it will start drawing a line from the next data point that is no NULL.

Is that correct?

Thanks for the links/suggestions.

Regards,

Nick
