STACKED BAR PLOT

The slope plot shows the value of the metrics available in the dataset in the t0 and t1 periods in absolute value or as % of the total.

PLOT DETAIL

The plot is run at the total plotted data level...

...and for each dimension. Categories are sorted by decreasing total amount value with "other rank > x" as last.

By clicking on a legend value you can highlight that value on the charts.

LABELS

Labels and values are plotted in the chart, but are not shown for small, less relevant, items.

visualization (9)

Longer labels that would not fit in the chart are automatically shortened.

By default all metrics present in the dataset are plotted. You can choose to plot only one metric, for instance "Amount".

Only the Amount plot will be plotted.

You can also change the order of the plot metrics. For instance instead of Units, then Amount, then Gross Margin you can choose a different order

The metrics will be plotted in the required order.

visualization (3)

By default, the four top items in terms of total Amount of the two periods are plotted, while the other items are aggregated together.

You can change the number of top items, and you can choose not to plot the value of the other aggregated items.

NORMALIZED STACKED PLOT

Values can be plotted in absolute value, as a % of total dataset, as a % of total dataset after filters, or as a % of the result row. The last two options only make sense if you plot a result row.

visualization (4)

NEGATIVE VALUES

Negative values - for instance negative margins - will be plotted, but without labels and with a vertical axis

visualization (8)

In case of % stacked bar charts, if there are negative values, the chart will not be plotted and a warning message will be shown.
