Closing the gap on time series charts

Am I missing it or is there no way to "close the gap" on time series charts...? With the recent time off we have had (because of a world-wide virus), a large portion of the graph is blank.

Hi Zack,


Unfortunately, what you are asking for is not entirely possible. There are a couple of different ways that you might be able to get the results that you desire.


Firstly, you could change this chart to a non Time Series chart, which will change the Chart to not show the information that is not in the Report. Note that if you have Date information with '0' values, this still wouldn't work in the way that you desire, it would only work if the Date value is not present. One caveat with this method is that the x axis labelling will become very convoluted and you will probably have to turn this off in order to understand your data better. There is no way to only show a set number of x labels.


Another option is that you could use a Date Slider to filter the data between two end points. This doesn't 'close' the gap between the two portions of your data, however, it could make it easier to understand.


Let me know if either of these options are suitable.


If you have an idea on how this could be achieved, I would be more than happy to raise an enhancement request. The issue I see here is that you are asking for is a mixture of continuous and discrete time measurements in the same chart and I'm not sure how you would overcome this and maintain the integrity of your data.


Kind regards,

Simon

Please let me know if the suggestions below helped, and if not, if you have an idea that could be raised as an Enhancement Request.


Otherwise, I will shortly go ahead and mark this ticket as answered for the time-being.

Simon,

Thanks for checking in! The person, for whom I created the report, is not happy. But, hopefully this will be just a temporary setback...

Feel free to close the ticket.


Thanks,

Zack
