Customizing Category Axis Value in Bold Reports
In Bold Reports, you can customize the category axis value for the chart report item. Customizing the category axis value in Bold Reports provides the ability to personalize the representation of data values in charts, resulting in more insightful and comprehensible reports. This feature empowers users to present data in a manner that best conveys the intended message, emphasizing particular data trends or patterns. By modifying the category axis values, users can effectively showcase the progression of projects over time, delineate the stages of manufacturing processes, or highlight various levels of customer satisfaction. For instance, users may choose to label the category axis values as “level 1”, “level 2”, “level 3”, and so on, to better illustrate the hierarchy or progression within the data. With this level of customization, Bold Reports enables users to create highly informative reports that facilitate better understanding and interpretation of data.
