The only thing I can think of is storing the "Sprint name" the the tooltip
From a "Best practice" approach defined by IBCS non-time dimension should be displayed by a bar-chart
Find my approach stored in attached workbook version 9.3 located in the original thread

Not sure if I missed something , but I understand that you need to make use of SPRINT number instead. Date is not much of use.
Why are you not able to achieve that ? (May be I am missing something )
When I dragged Story Points to Rows and Sprint Name I got below without using Dates ? (Date is not needed here to get Line chart)

Thanks for the responses Ritish/Norbert!
Norbert - thanks for the info on the tooltip, that may work for me. Unfortunately, bar charts aren't a good way of representing the data.
Ritesh - that is exactly what I'm looking for, but I can't seem to make a line chart like that if I do the exact same thing in my version of Tableau. The line chart is option is grayed out if there is no date in my data. It only creates bar charts for me.
Below is a screenshot of what I see - is there something I'm missing? Or was that feature taken away in the latest version of tableau?
Hey Chris ,
I am using 10.2 ,which is not old, what is your version ? It should be there.
Please find my .twbx file , please open and see may be some small mistake.
You can share your file if it is still not working .

After digging around the Tableau forums & trainings, I learned that you need to have a date field of some sort to create a line chart in Tableau.
Well, you need to use a date field to default to a line chart. You can have anything on the X-axis and change to Line (as others are showing you), but when Tableau sees Time on the X-axis it changes it to line automagically.
Thanks a ton Ritesh - that was my issue! I officially feel dumb now !
You are welcome !No need to feel like that , you just ignored small thing
