A Stacked Bar Chart and a Legend.



Overview

The Stacked Bar Chart displays a bar (or column) for each dimension value, made up of the metrics of each series stacked on top of each other. Each bar originates from zero. This chart is different from the Bar Chart in that multiple Stacked Bar series should show component parts of a total. For example, the chart to the right displays the sales figures for two different product categories, as well as the total, all at once.

Tip: An easy way to split your data into multiple series is to use a KPI splitter dimension.

Bars may be vertical or horizontal—to show horizontal bars, transpose the chart's axes.


Features

All Stacked Bar series are displayed stacked on top each other unless the Stacked Group Name property has been set on one or more series. Above each X axis value, the series are grouped into separate stacks of series that have been set to the same stacked group name.

Tip: Create separate KPIs or datasets for each stacked group so that you can easily set the Stacked Group Name property on each series in the Dashboard Designer.
