4. Drag and drop axis fields
Once the page loads, the chart will be blank. Datasets can contain many different metrics for measurements. For Mapline to understand which data you are wanting to display on the chart, you will need to assign fields as “X-Axis Field” or “Y-Axis Field.” The “X-Axis Field” describes the information you want to display on the x-axis (bottom) of the graph.
For this chart type, there can only be one field categorized as the X-Axis. The X-Axis is a display of where differences occur. These differences might derive from sales reps, months, company products, etc. The “Y-Axis Field” describes the numerical data that you want to display on the y-axis (side) of the graph. For this chart type, there can be unlimited fields categorized as the Y-Axis. The Y-Axis field consists of the different categories for which you would like to see percentages out of a total. The Y-Axis may display the percentage of raw materials obtained from different countries, the categories a company budget was spent in, how many website visitors create an account, etc. Each unique part of the whole will need to be added separately. When you hover over a field you would like to appear on the chart, six blue dots will appear. Click and drag those dots to pull that spreadsheet data into the field of your choice.
