Is it possible to add data labels to a bar chart in the Interactive Chart Tool? This was possible in the deprecated Charting Tool, but I can't figure out how to add labels in the new Interactive Chart Tool.
I see that there is an option to add labels for a pie chart, but can't find that option for a bar chart.
The chart I'd like to replicate is something like this:
I'm sorry this is so frustrating for you and we recognize the lack of functionality and it's usefulness/necessity. This is a high priority for us and I will update you when we are able to make this feature available.
Attempting to have outside labels and an automatic chart width for repeat ability's sake. And it keeps cutting off my labels. Any insight in how to solve this issue? I don't like the look of auto labels because some of them are flipping sideways and are difficult to read
@efurlow I will mess around with the auto-labeling when the bars at different widths and work with the engineering team to understand what options we have available to us. I'm sorry for this frustration and will look into this experience. Please reach out with additional thoughts.
@efurlow - I know this is a late response, but in case it's helpful to you or someone else... We're still on 2019.2 in my org, so I can't try out the new labels yet, sadly... I can't wait!
However, we do sometimes want to add some horizontal buffer to a chart for aesthetic reasons. Maybe this work-around would help give your labels enough space?
I add a second layer to the chart, using a value that is larger than the largest bar. That forces the x-axis to accommodate the new, larger value, and creates space between the largest bar and the right side of the chart.
Find the max value in your data
Add some buffer (for example 40%) to the max value. You could also use a specific value (e.g. [max_value] + 500).
Create your bar chart as usual
Add a second layer to your chart (a scatter plot). For the scatter plot, set Y = your category field, and set X = the max value + buffer that you created in step 2.
You can make the scatter layer invisible by either going to Layer settings --> un-check Show: Points or by changing the color to the same as your background.
