Option to add a Prefix (such as a $) in the Vertical Axis of the Auto Charts

Not Planned

We know that formatting Vertical Axis in Auto-Chart feature is not available in Yellowfin as of now.Is there any way to add symbols(preferable $) in Prefix of the Vertical Axis of Auto-Chart?

Custom-chart option is not preferable as we need to have Dynamic-Axis and this feature is also not available for custom-charts in Yellowfin.

Hi Subhadeep,

I have had some feedback on this from the developement team and this idea is not planned in the near future. The reasoning behind this, is that the Auto Chart is purely there to get a quick chart up and running for a fast visual effect. Once a customer knows what chart they are looking for, then they will select the right option. It is within these specific chart types the options such as Prefix on the VErtical Axis become available.

I hope this makes sense.

Thank you,

Paul

We have a similar problem. We often use visible series selection for our charts, and we need some kind of dynamic formatting of vertical axis. For example we have a chart with two series, first one showing % of sales and the second one showing sales total in $. The current fixed vertical axis format can only support one format (either $ or %), and this creates confusion for our users.

Thank you,

Hi Peter,


Thank you for your message.


What you are looking for is a 'Combination Chart' or an 'Overlay Chart', in order to have two separate vertices on the Y axis, with two different measures for each of the series. Once you create a Combination Chart, you can add line or bar sub-charts, and elect to measure them on the secondary Y axis. You will then be able to format both axises independently, adding prefixes, suffixes, and other formatting options. In the below example I have Sum Invoiced Amount, and % of Invoiced Total on the same chart, with two separate Y axis measures in $ and %. Please find wiki page here: https://wiki.yellowfinbi.com/display/user80/Combination+Charts


This post relates to Auto-Charts, which are intended to be used as an exploratory tool to get a quick idea of what kind of chart they would like to produce. For this reason, this particular idea is not planned in the near future.


Let me know how you find Combination Charts!


Regards,

Simon
