Plot count of two different date sets on single date axis
I have a question which I think should be easy to solve, but I simply can't think of / find a smart solution so far.
I have the following dataset:
What I would like to visualize is very simple: a bar chart in which is shown how many documents have been planned for review every quarter (planned date) and how many have been finished (date ready) in that quarter. However, if I pick either one of the date columns as the x-axis the result is columns of equal hight, I somehow need a "neutral" date axis to show the count of the planned and ready amounts per quarter.
Is it possible to do this with a measure or should I maybe create a helping table?
Brilliant, this was exactly what I was looking for. Only remaining question will be how to manage interactions if you add a table as a visual. How do you manage relations with Table 1 and table 2 in this case, you have to pick a column from table 1 (planned or ready) to connect with date in table 2. Which than makes it impossible to click on only the planned or a ready column in the bar chart, but you always open both against the chosen relationship.
Hope the explanation above makes sense, if not please let me know!
