Chart Labels: drag labels overlap & stacked column labels

IPC ✭✭✭

The chart labels overlap and font sizes cannot be adjusted.

Workarounds are applied such as expanding the chart horizontally or vertically depending on the chart type, or another suggestion was to "Fill Line option for the "Actual" to show the difference between the two." these are work-arounds not the real solutions.

I hope you can enhance this to be able to present clear reports.

    Hi @Genevieve P. There's a number of common concerns & votes on this issue already? what is the criteria or count of votes before smartsheet takes action on a request?

  • Genevieve P.

    Hey @IPC,

    The Product team reviews the top posts once a month to provide a Status (like on this Idea). 12 votes isn't enough to make this a "top-voted" Idea to receive a public status update here in the forum just yet.

    That said, they still intake all of this feedback and information along with other feedback channels when deciding on new features and enhancements. Please continue to vote on Ideas that are important to you, and feel free to share this thread to other Smartsheet users to get their votes and feedback!

    I have the same issue. The overlapping issue cause the confusing of the high level manager who access the dashboard. This feature is a big issue. Please fix it ASAP.

    commenting to add that this is a huge frustration for my team as well. Do we just upvote to indicate the need?

    We are having the same issue that the labels don't align to the correct section on the chart. My wish is the same as everyone above. I hope this is included in upcoming release / update.

    Currently, the bar chart on the dashboard is not showing the count in full. There is no scroll bar to scroll right, or there is no more room to make the graph larger!

    I'd also like to be able to edit where a data label is placed. I'd also like to be able to format the label. A black label in a dark colour series is not going to be easy to read. Being able to bold them as well would be good. And a wish list - being able to forma them individually to highlight key numbers would also be good.
