Create a report with text fields and measures from the data

Michelle Braman shared this question 1 month ago

A chart looks to only display numbers.

I want to display the most current date next to a measure. How do you do that?

I have attached a sample of what I would like to see. I would like to see each of these values as separate "charts". All the data comes from the view and is not hard coded except for title.

I have figured out a round about way to accomplish this. Hopefully in newer versions it will be more simple.

Hey Michelle,

I hope you are well!

How did you get to the results you were after?

I had a look and a comparative infographic chart seemed like a possibility... what was your work around?

Thanks & Best wishes,

Hi Lesley,

Thank you for asking about this! This was a very very round about way with lots of manipulating. I created the picture in one report with multiple charts/advanced functions for previous month % and text boxes.

Is this what you are looking for on how to do?

Hey Michelle,


By creating multiple charts did you do this by using section tabs/ filters? Or creating each individual chart based on one report?

Our technical consultant is currently onsite today and I will check his schedule for tomorrow but I would like him to see both of your chart images to see if he knows of an easier way to achieve what you have/ maybe closer to what you are looking for :)


Maybe we could jump on a screen share tomorrow? so I can see how your report is built and have a better understanding so I can have a go at building the chart too on my end!


Let me know :)


Thanks & Best Wishes,

Lesley

Hey Michelle,

I hope you have been well!

I just wanted to check in with you to see if you were still happy with your work around?

Also, you mentioned that this would hopefully be easier to do in future versions - well we have a new Yellowfin release coming out later this year (8.1) which includes dashboard canvas! So this may in fact be easier in the future! :)

Best Wishes,

Lesley

Hello - I'm still not happy with the convoluted work around.

I do hope the new dashboard canvas will be more intuitive and allow for better dashboarding and modifying.


Thank you
