How do you adjust the y-axix scale in column reports?

  • Question
  • Updated 5 months ago
I am doing some reporting for our CSAT-style survey questions and hitting some confusion charts. The question itself can yield one of five possible numeric answers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Therefore, the maximum average value of a group is 5.00. However, when making a report where the average is above 4.00, the report shows a max y-axis range of 6. This is silly and something I would like to change.

Does anyone know how to set a specific value range for the y-axis in a column graph?

Per the above, I would like to to be min of 1.00 and max of 5.00 (depending on the data, I might even do a min of 3.00 if I am feeling crazy).

Thanks for the help as always!

I've been struggling with this as well. In general, it'd be great if we could format more of the axis attributes. e.g. bounds, units, labels, label position, etc. 

We're sending monthly emails to customers that contain reports, and it would be ideal if we could dress the reports up a bit before embedding in an outreach. 

Thanks for posting Ben :)

Is it possible to set the y-axis in any type of report? I'm with you that this would be very helpful. Like Pele we send reports via CoPilot and the report can sometimes show "dramatic" drops (of 1) because of the scale. I commented on this 3-year old thread a couple of months ago asking for an update on this topic, but it seems like it's still a feature request based on the lack of response that I got?

This is not possible today in the product. We plan to bring the ability to adjust the y-axis scale in the future. Have added this to the roadmap and will update here on ETA when we take this up.
