How to configure Box and Whisker Plots in Charting Tool

Quasar

I'm seeking information on how to configure the Charting Tool to create a Box and Whisker Plot. Currently I take a product of one of my Alteryx Apps and run it through Tableau to create this type of visualization:

For my use case, the individual employees (labeled as 'assignee' in my data below) are represented on the x axis and the 'hours old' are represented on the y axis.

 

I'm not expecting Alteryx to be as "fancy" but I'd like to include this type of chart so the recipients of this report can see a visual preview of the data. In other words: I want to include a box and whisker plot in the email body of the email render tool, in addition to linking the user to the Tableau view with more details - such as the status (red/green).

 

This configuration...

I can't find any information on how to configure this tool. What is possible?

I think this could be based on the way that your data is setup before going into the tool.  It needs to be summarized.  Does this workflow help to illustrate?

@MaureenW Thank you for your response!

 

I'm on Designer Version 11.3 and I can't open the attachment. Can you send a compatible version or screenshots?

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Try this one.  Not sure it will work in 11.0 but I changed the version to that.  If it doesn't work, I'll try again or send a screenshot.

Let me know

Success! Thank you, @MaureenW!

 

Here's some screen shots of the configuration that worked for me:

@MaureenW

Hi Maureen -- I am using Alteryx 2018.3 and I would like to build a Box and Whisker plot.  It seemed to be easier with the previous version you showed here, but I am not sure how to use the new interactive charting tool to accomplish the same thing.  Can you share a demo to create the Box & Whisker with the new interactive charting tool?

 

Thanks,

Derreck
