Thin Horizontal Stacked Bar

After upgrade to 9.3, horizontally stacked bar charts became super thin. Not sure how to adjust to regain their original thickness. Had to go into the Chart Axis and set to the Titles to 'Custom' and after the report save, ended up with these super-thin bar chart. Is there some setting that would change the bar width? or is this a bug?

I see now that it set my Date Filed as a Time Series and then up the units a milliseconds

I get a thick bar if I set the time series units as seconds. But couldn't get the vertical axis label centered.

When I turn off the time services I get this smaller bar. Is there any way to increase the vertical thickness of this bar?

Hi Melissa,


Thanks for your question.


Which version of Yellowfin were you upgrading from?


If you navigate to the Chart Axis > Vertical Axis settings in the Chart Builder stage of creating the report, you should be able to set the 'Maximum width' of the series. I've attached a couple of images at the end of this message to demonstrate. In this particular instance, I do not believe you should be viewing the chart as a time series as you do not seem to be viewing data at successive time intervals, rather as a categorical bar chart with the Date as a filter. Time series charts will interpolate data and may cause charts to look slightly different.


Let me know how this goes for you.


Kind regards,

Simon

Thank you. Reports originally created in 7.1, upgraded to 7.4 (edited to fix the gradient settings), then upgraded to 8.1, then edited again in 9.3 when rebuilding dashboards ;)

Hi Melissa,


Thanks for clarifying that.


That upgrade path is quite significant and covers 3 of our major releases. The issue you have described regarding Reports sounds like a default setting that would've been deliberately changed and would have been addressed in our change management documentation.


Would you be able to confirm that the solution provided earlier resolved your issue? If that's the case, and you have no further questions, I will go ahead and mark this question as closed.


Kind regards,

Simon
