    Switch from discrete to continuous when changing date granularity: Am I crazy?

    Alex Kerin

      So... If you drag a datetime out to rows for example, it defaults to YEAR(Date) as a discrete pill. If I then change that to the full MDY which is by far the most common type I use, it switches to a continuous pill, and tries to draw a chart for every row. Given my typical scope of data, I then have to cancel that and flip it to discrete. 

       

      I understand that MDY is commonly used as a continuous axis, but does anyone find this behavior useful? Wouldn't it be better to keep it as discrete when the pill is already on the sheet? If people drag the pill in with the left mouse button, I'd be fine keeping that as continuous when dropped.

       

      Or maybe it's just me...
