X-Axis Date Forematting

I have a chart that is doing the following

 

Annotation 2020-05-17 104039.png

but what I want is just the MMM DD to show on the x-axis (instead of MAY 18, 12 AM and MAY 18 12 PM, I just want one showing MAY 18). The ForecastDate column in a DATE field.

 

Thanks in advance!

Michael

Re: X-Axis Date Forematting

So, is that field a Date field? You can change the format on the Column Tools or Measure Tools tab of the ribbon.

Re: X-Axis Date Forematting

Hi @espo4life ,

 

Make sure that the field is in date format, and if the problem persists, try setting the type on the x-axis to category.
