I have been using (successfully) the custom visual "As Timeline" to represent start/stop intervals on a non-time based measurement (measuring a task from start to stop, every day, based on non-sequential linear length). It's pretty good at working, however today an executive asked very specifically about adding a grid like one might see on a normal graph. I haven't ever turned this on because when you turn on the x-axis, it shows linear distances as "time" because the visualization is programmed to, I'm guessing, only work with time scales. Does anyone have any recommendations or replacement options? The developer has turned off the ability to reach out for support so not sure what to do.
A Gantt chart won't work, because on a certain task (one band), it will only show one start & one end. The kind of visualization I'm using/looking for will allow daily logs of start/stop (based on location) and group those together in one band, showing gaps. So if a task was done from MP1 to MP5 on day one and on day two it was MP6 to MP8, then the band would show a gap from MP5 to MP6.
Okay, I am trying to use the "Gantt" custom visualization, but there's a lot of issues. When in formatting, and I try to toggle on "Group Tasks", it immediately turns it off again without clicking. Same with other things in the visualization. Also the axis still shows as time/dates and not a simple 1, 2, 3, 4...
Looks like Gantt is not suitable for your case so it is definitely better to contact the author of "as Timeline" visual. I checked a support link from the app store and now it workы correctly. However, I haven't found any contacts on this page so, I will ask the author to provide some e-mail or will pass your request somehow else.
