Adjusting Visualization Properties

You generally don’t need to change visualization properties because the default selections cover most cases. You might want to make adjustments such as hiding the legend, changing axis labels, or adding a URL link.

  1. If your project contains multiple visualizations, click the visualization that you want to change the properties for. In the visualization’s toolbar, click Menu, and then select Properties to display the Properties dialog.
  2. In the visualization’s toolbar, click Menu, and then select Properties to display the Properties dialog.
    The properties you can edit are displayed in tabs and depend on the type of visualization you’re handling.
  3. Adjust the visualization’s properties as needed:
    Properties Tab Description
    Analytics Add reference lines, trend lines, and bands to display at the minimum or maximum values of a measure included in the visualization.
    Axis Set horizontal and vertical value axis labels and start and end axis values.
    Data Sets Override the way the system automatically blends data from two data sources.
    Edge Labels Show or hide row or column totals and wrap label text.
    General Format titles, position the legend, and customize descriptions.
    Action Add URLs or links to insights in Tile, Image, and Text Box visualizations.

    If you use Chrome for Windows or Android, the Description text field displays a Dictate button (microphone) that you can use to record the description via audio.

    Style Set the background and border color for Text visualizations.
    Values Specify data value display options including the aggregation method such as sum or average, and number formatting such as percent or currency.
