Overlapping Column Chart

I am looking at a Goal vs. Actual column chart. I have two context cases for this framework: units goal and units sold, and revenue goal and revenue collected.

I have my bar chart working correctly, but I want to change the design of it a bit to be more visually appealing.

I am not satisfied with the Classic design view. It looks like this:

I have tried the Stacked and Stacked 100 views but they aren't doing what I need them to do.


I want the column charts to overlap.

If I have a product with a goal of 100 units, and we've sold 20 of them so far, the Stacked design view makes my entire bar equal 120 (combining the goal and the actual). 

I don't want that. And I don't want a static goal or budget line across my graph.

I want the bar to stay at the goal of 100 and to see the 20 units sold in front of the 100 unit goal bar.

Kind of like this, visually:

Does anyone know how to do this? I think it should be a default design view option.

 

Thanks for the help!

One option is to remove below lines of code from the script, so that it will display default Sisense tooltip with formatted numbers.

widget.on("beforedatapointtooltip", function (se, args){
	args.cancel=true;
});
ev.result.tooltip.shared = true
ev.result.tooltip.enabled = true

Hi @oliviar ,

You can play with formulas and Stacked type.
In your case, instead of Goal value use the difference between Goal and Actual. As a result, you will get the correct sum. But be careful with cases where Actual > Plan, because the difference will be negative. But you can do whatever you want with the conditions and colors. For example:

Thank you! I like the top one. I think this is what we are looking for. The only thing that's kind of bugging me now is when I hover over the product in the bar graph, the numbers associated with the goal and actual are not formatted the same way as they were before--they don't look as clean.

I have tried to change the format in the dashboard design and it won't change. Do you have any pointers here?

Ideally I would be able to see the comma separators, dollar signs, and reduce the decimal places so it is a rounded figure.

Thanks!
