Is it not possible to change the font size of the Legend text in a charting tool (no maps being used, just a simple chart based on a simple table)?

You can change the font size of the legend by going in to the configuration of the Charting Tool. Under Setup Chart Appearance, select "Font Details," there you will have the dropdown option to "Change Legend Font." By changing that to "Yes" you will have the option to change font size, color, and style.

Hi!

How can I change the color of the bars? I dont mean by field, but I just simply one another color and not just red.

Another question, If I am using the email tool, how can I just send one email having two charts that I have join and created a layout already?

Greetings @Rominap11,

 

Are you asking whether or not you can change all of the bar colors from red to another color? Or are you wanting different colors for each bar?

 

If it's the former, then you can simply click on the number corresponding with your Series and change the Series Color.

With respect to the Email Tool you may want to review this article (https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Knowledge-Base/Tool-Mastery-Email/ta-p/32129/jump-to/first-...)

 

In short, one email will be generated per record of data being passed in to the Email Tool. Therefore if you have two charts you will want to join them so that they share a row in the table. You can bring those charts together via the Layout tool so that you can control where they appear and how they relate to one another (one on top of the other, or side to side). Now that you have reduced those two charts to a single Layout Report snippet, you can use that as your Body field, and the email tool should issue a single email with those two charts in the body.

 

Cheers,

Paul
