Display Bar Chart with a Line Instead

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

 Hi All,

 

For purely visual reasons, is it possible to show a bar chart with a line instead? 

 

More specifically, I have created a bar chart with a 2nd axis.  I want the primary access to display as bars, and the secondary axis to display as a line.

 

Thanks

Hi Ben, 

 

This isn't possible yet. Currently, the only chart where lines (other than trend lines) are available as a display option is the 'Time Series' report. 

 

It is possible there to combine lines and bars in the presentation like this, but doesn't help if a time dimension isn't relevant to the data you want to show:

Could you please let me know how combining lines and bars work?
