Stacked column charts


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


The stacked column chart is similar to the column chart, but with one major difference. It includes a legend, which divides each column into additional sections by color.

Stacked column charts are typically used when you want to compare aggregated data and the data that it includes together. This chart type benefits when you add the Show Data Labels option. Turning it on will show the sum of the stacks at the top of each stack.

It is important to note that stacked column charts plot the y-axis as a percentage by default. You can choose to toggle Show Y-Axis as % on or off in the Configuration Options. This feature is also available for stacked area charts.
