Dynamic Data Series Names

Is there a way to have dynamic data series names? We sometimes have to switch between conversions and it would be so much clearer to users to show them what conversion they're looking at.

    Hey Tim, great question!  You're right, we cannot have a dynamic name for a Series in a Bar Chart.  However, a manageable workaround is to use either a Label beside the Bar Chart, or the Title of the Klip to dynamically show which metric(s) are being shown.  

    Quick video here.  I've hidden the legend in the bar chart, and instead used both a Label, and the Klip Title to show what metric is shown.  Label and Title are both listening for a variable.  My variable is populated by the drop down, but it could just as well be populated by something else (user, company property, user input control on another klip on the dashboard, etc.).

    Hi Zach,


    We'd be really interested in this too - the workaround is okay, but it's not very neat - or especially slick, we'd like to be able to put think in front of clientsand it doens't really meet our standards atm.

    I am happy to share that dynamic series are supported in the new Metrics Monitoring capabilities that were recently released in beta. When you visualize a metric on a bar or line chart the series are automatically added for each member. The series change dynamically to reflect the members with values in the specified time range.

    You can learn more about metrics here. As well the Knowledge Base has a bunch of useful articles

    Thank you,
