I'm trying to emulate a graph from the book, Effective Data Visualization by Dr. Stephanie Evergreen. Here's what I have so far:
This was a little bit of work to create and while it isn't what I exactly had hoped for, it does approximate my attempt. Ideally, I would do the following to complete the exercise:
Have a Y-Axis (none) line on for both Old/New Sites (dual-axis)
Replace the Y-Axis number with the Label for the departments
Remove the (line) from the label
As observations, in order to add carriage returns to NOTES, i had to use HTML tags <br>. The settings for points and lines required me to do lots of configuration. Maybe a format painter would help to copy the format from one set of point/lines to the next. Once I completed a chart/insight it would be "nice" to be able to copy and configure the other. If you have an insight and wish to create a chart, you have to reconfigure the new element from scratch.
I do have an error in the creation of the chart that says, "Error parsing configuration." I have no idea what error exists. I submitted a ticket on that issue.
I haven't created this chart via Excel, but the textbook shows you how to create the result in Excel. The graph is easy for me to see and to understand. I like it and think that it could be a valuable way to demonstrate the potential for Alteryx visualizations.
