I am trying to have a timeseries line graph convert into a bar chart via page linking. When selecting a point on the timeseries graph it opens a hidden tab revealing the bar chart with the current date selected. I'd like to add a breadcrumb for users to remind them what date they are looking at when this happens.
I was thinking of doing this via parameter, but I am unable to recall how to assign the correct date to the parameter from the action of selecting the chart.
Can anyone assist?
Unfortunately you cannot assign a parameter to a graph like the time series plot, they can only be set by prompts.
If the goal is to show users on the hidden page what date they are looking at, could you do something as simple as adding a list table or a button bar or something like that to the hidden page with your Date column assigned to it? That way when the page is linked, the List Table/Button Bar/whatever should get filtered to the single date coming from the Time Series plot. Or have I misinterpreted what you are trying to do?
