Column chart

Click the Column chart icon to visualise your data as a column chart. A column chart allows you to see trends over a specific period of time.


In the example below, this column chart shows the number of active users in Fuse over a 9 year period from 2011-2019. 

To recreate this example: 

  • Drag the Active Users measure from theData Catalogue, into the Measures section. 

  • Drag the Date measure from the Data Catalogue, into the View By section. Select Day from the as dropdown and select Year from the group by dropdown.  

Additional features

The column chart also allows you to: 

Create stacked column charts

You can create a stacked column chart by dragging attributes into the Stack By section. A stacked column chart can add more depth to your insight by further breaking down the data.

For example, you might want to see the number of active users in Fuse, broken down by department. To do this, you could drag the Department attribute into the Stack By section. 

This divides each column by department. When you hover over each section, it shows the number of active users for a particular department. 

Display data as a percentage

You can display the data in the Measures section as a percentage on the column chart, by selecting the Show in % checkbox. This can help you to understand the relative difference between the different values of the attribute (such as the different departments in Fuse). 

Move the Y-Axis

You can display the Y-axis to the right of the column chart, by selecting the show on right axis checkbox.

Apply filters

You filter the data in the column chart, in the Filters section. 

Customise the look and feel

You can customise the look and feel of the column chart to match your organisation's branding. For more information about customisation, see the Configuration section.
