I've tried to create some charts & then put them into Horizontal containers so I can have a drop Down filter on each.
That was the theory anyway as the Drop Down filters the whole container.
Ideally, I want 2 or more charts showing weekly sales data for various Products side by side so I can compare one week with another for the Products.
Can anyone advise the best way to do this?
I guess where you are placing the dropdown that makes a difference. if you are placing both of them in report filter or section filter location.
Then they will behave as filters on report level like applicable for all sections in a report. and if you are putting them at section level then they will apply for all the graphs or reports you have in that section.
So I would suggest just place dropdowns in the big square box( report designer ) window and then add interaction to respective graph.
let me know if that helps.
Thanks for your response Teja,
That's an idea, but I was thinking of something like 2 Line charts that display different periods based on the same data.
I've tried creating 2 separate reports with Sliders to give the user the option to choose a time period for each.
Is it possible to put a report into a container & have its filters only work for that report?
Here's a mockup from Excel, I would like something close to this if possible, otherwise I'll use your other suggestion,
I'd like to have the date ranges able to be selected independently for each chart so the User can select whatever periods to compare
The mentioned excel example is possible in sas va.
I am getting error to attach files in communities.
I don't understand what you are trying to do "I'd like to have the date ranges able to be selected independently for each chart so the User can select whatever periods to compare". can please about this
Thanks & Regards,
I've found that I can create 2 Charts and have, for example, a drop down box that changes the filters for both charts in SAS VA, however, what I want is to have 2 charts that can have filters separately so a user can look at data from different periods in each chart in the same screenshot.
In my screenshot you could look at the WK1 - WK4 chart & compare the data from the same table for WK5 - WK8.
Hope that makes sense.
I am getting error to upload the screen shot in communities,
In theory, You have to split week column in two columns which is week1 & week2.
But you can't automate them.
I understood your requirement, i will try to upload the images in communities.
Thanks & Regards,
I won't need to animate the charts, just view them.
If you're having trouble uploading the images, you can just give me the roles & the fields I need to use to get the behaviour I need.
For the snapshot I posted, I used the software program 'Printkey' (free version is available on the net) & uploaded my charts as an image.
Teja and Peter,
We had some filters on that were blocking attachments to help with SPAM. I've just lifted those, if you want to try to upload the screenshot now, Teja.
Many thanks and I apologize for the inconvenience,
