Chart Labels: drag labels overlap & stacked column labels



  • LaurieCass

    Agree with previous members, need a solution to the stacked chart labels.

    The show value labels on charts, particularly stacked column charts, sometimes cause problems because of their placement at the top of the columns. Unless closely examined, this placement can cause users to interpret the value for the lower label as denoting the value of the label in which it appears, and in some cases, the value labels for the top column have been observed to be truncated. It would be helpful to be able to control the placement of these value labels in relation to the column, or at least to be placed in the middle of the corresponding column, instead of at the top.

    Smartsheet please address this. Correct placement and interpretation of data labels is fundamental. Your stacked bar and column graphs as not useable for executive audiences. It would be good to not have to export data out of Smartsheet to use other dashboarding solutions.

    Excited to have enhanced functionality here. I've got a chart that cuts off the numbers and it continues to do the same if I make the widget full width or add the legend on the right. Can't tell the whole story with this.

    Any update on timing?

    Can you add to the functionality the ability to select the placement of where the numbers for each stack appear? Right now, they only appear above, and it is confusing

    Yes, please support moving the value inside the bar on the chart. For a "Stacked Column" chart, the label is confusing in it's location "on top". I have to turn off the label or people get confused, and when needed I end up rebuilding it in Excel instead.
