Unified Time Bar
When you work with your dashboard, you can apply the settings that you have configured on your time bar to multiple charts from the same data source. This enables you to view and playback the data on different charts for the same time period and filtered by the same time filter.
By default, the time bar settings are applied to each chart from the same data source that you add to your dashboard, provided that you have only one unified time bar configured.
You can use different unified time bars for chart groups on your dashboard. In this case, new charts won't be assigned any of the existing unified time bars.
using unified time Bar for specific charts on the dashboard
If you have several charts from the same data source, you can use different unified time bar settings for different charts.
For example, you want to apply the settings, configured on the time bar to two charts on your dashboard: Audience and Sales/Countries .
Perform the following steps:
- Select a chart on the dashboard and configure the time bar settings: select the time attribute, adjust the required time period to be analyzed, etc.
Click the time attribute on the time bar:
dialog box, select the charts from your dashboard for which you want to use unified time bar. The available charts are listed in the
section. For example, select
The other charts - Books, Feedback, and Purchases will maintain their own individual time bars.
- Save the dashboard.
If you want Audience or Sales/Countries to stop using unified time bar and have its own, clear the corresponding checkboxes in the Books Sales list.
If your dashboard contains charts from different data sources, the Applies to section will list the charts separated out by the data source:
The active section in the
list (in which you can enable or disable unified time bar) depends on the chart selected in the dashboard. For example, on the dashboard below, the
chart (based on Book Sales data source) is selected. That's why you can manage the charts in the Books Sales section, while charts from the
Real Time Sales
data source are disabled:
