Changing the Time Bar Field

You can change the time bar field for a chart in the chart time bar settings or on the time bar itself.

While you are working on a dashboard or chart, the time range and playback configuration you have selected for different time fields are retained. So when you switch between different time fields, the time range and playback settings may change. For example, you might have analyzed your data using the following time fields:

Field Range Playback
Date January 2019-March 2019 On (enabled)
Ts April 2019 Off (disabled

When you switch between these fields on the time bar, the ranges and playback settings also switch, as appropriate for each field.
