How to vary the width of the Axis data in a Clustered Bar Chart

I'm using a Clustered Bar Chart as the source for a Drill-through.  The Axis is basically customer name and the Value is the customer's YTD Sales $ amount.  Here's what it looks like out of the box:

In order to make the chart more user-friendly, I would like to expand the width of the Customer Name field so users can see more of the name.  (The intent here is that the user will right-click on the customer name or Sales $ value and select "Drillthrough > [customer details drillthrough target page]".)

 

Does anyone know whether it's possible to widen the Customer Name field in this visualization?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I found that we may could set the maximum size for Y-Axis to widen the name like below which should meet your requirement.

However, the maximum size have a range from15% to 50%, if your name is too long, I'm afraid there is no better way to widen it.

 

Hopr this can make sense of you!

Hi @Anonymous,

 

By my tests, if you widen the width of this chart, the name feild will show more of the name.

Yes, it does display more of the name if you make the chart wider, but it mostly widens the area of the bar chart itself.  Not the solution I was hoping for unfortunately.
