Change "zero point" or "center line" on x axis of horizontal bar chart - similar to tornado format

Working to build a horizontal bar chart with values below "x" say 50, going to the left and above going to the right.


Example Store A has 80 widgets and Store B has 30 widgets

 

The chart list Store A and B on the X axis, store A would have a bar going to the right "starting from 50", and store B would have a bar going to the left "starting from 50".

Re: Change "zero point" or "center line" on x axis of horizontal bar chart - sim

Hi @robertneallau

You could consider this workaround.

Use Tornado 1.3.0 visual, then create calculated column

category = IF([widgets]=50,"starting from 50",IF([widgets]>50,"over 50","less 50"))

Then add "line" and "text" on the visual

Re: Change "zero point" or "center line" on x axis of horizontal bar chart - sim

Hi @robertneallau

After searching, I can't find a visual which is able to meet your requirement exactly.

Here is a workaround.

Created calculated columns, then add columns in a stacked bar chart.

Widgets 2 = IF([widgets]=50,0,IF([widgets]>50,[widgets]-50,[widgets]-50) )

category = IF([widgets]=50,"starting from 50",IF([widgets]>50,"over 50","less 50"))

The line in the middle of the chart is a constant line.

Re: Change "zero point" or "center line" on x axis of horizontal bar chart - sim

Hi Maggie, this is very close.  The axis and data value still need to read the reported actual value.

 

Example, the first bar needs to display the number 80 and grow from 50 versus the reported calculated value of 30, same with the bars going to the left.  The second bar would report 30 and not -20 and start from 50, the reported values/labels need to be the actual value


How is this accomplished?

Hello all,

 

Do you know if there is an equivalent of the tornado chart for Vertical bar chart with custom y axis "zero point" ?

 

Thanks in advance,

Numa
