    dimension as a shape

    Mikey Michaels

      Hello,

      Quick question- is it possible to add a shape to the Zone dimension I have on the graph below and not on the measure?

      If yes, how would I do that?

            Yes, It is possible .

             

            I would like add an instance here

            REQ: Region, State wise Sales Data. Here We are trying to to show Region in "Shapes".

            1) Create a report with the following steps

            a) Drag the [Region] onto row shelf , choose marks type "Shape", drag the [Region] on to shapes.

            b) Right click on [Region] on the row shelf then click on "Show header".

            c) Now this report shows different shapes for different regions.

             

            2) Create another report to show the data State wise

            a) Drag the [Region] , [State] on to row shelf and [Sales] on to 'Text",.

            b) Right click on [Region] on the row shelf then click on "Show header".

            c) Now this report shows Region, State wise Sales data (Region names are hidden)

            3) Now add the above 2 reports in the New DASHBOARD.

             

            Best Regards
