Multi axes graphs are helpful when you want to compare related items with different scales. Multi axes graphs allow visualizing in the same analysis data for up to five calculation types. Multi axes graphs are also known as multi-scale.

1. Multi axes graph
When choosing to visualize an analysis with multiple calculation types, in most cases, multi-axes is the default visualization, unless there are other rules that overwrite this, for example, a standard analysis where the total is counts and the elements are percentages.
For each calculation type, you have the option to select the chart type for each item and you can also adjust the scale.
2. Selecting graph type
You can select different graph types for each item in your analysis; this can be at the axis or element level. Multi axes graph follows the rules of the chart types selected.
The types of graphs you can choose include:
- Bar graph
- Line graph and/or Trendline
- Solid line graph
- Dotted line graph
- Solid line graph
- Stacked bar graph
When choosing a different chart for a specific element; the calculation type displays an orange bar/highlight.
3. Scale controls for multi axes graph
You can choose to have your multi-axis chart display automatic scales, or you can apply logical max or min settings to each of the charts.
- Different calculation types have different scales.
- A new scale is created for different graph types for a given calculation type.
For each calculation type, a drop-down arrow is displayed below each graph type.
When clicked, it expands a menu with the scale panel. In the case of line graphs, it will also display the option to show the trendLearn more about trendlines..
You can choose to have your charts display automatic scales (let the system pick the best for the data presented) or to apply logical maximum or minimum settings for the graph to adhere to. Learn more.
