Feature request: dates from comparison series in tooltip

I use a lot of charts that compare last X days with the last X days before. So I get 2 series in 1 chart. But the tooltip always shows the date from the X-axis.

See example. The dates of last 28 days are used on the X-axis, the light blue line is the comparison, and contains older data (28 days prior to the last 28 days). But in the tooltip I keep seeing the value of the X-axis, in this example 'Jun 23'. It would be great to have the actual date here that matches the serie you hover. That way it also works in Analytics.

    Hi Erwin,

    Thanks for posting in our Community!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the hover title of the X-Axis depending on the series you hover on.
    However, what you could do is change the X-Axis, so that instead of having the specific date, you just have "Day XX", where XX is 1-28.

    Or what you could do, is concatenate to two dates together in the X-Axis.
    June 23/May 25

    This could be done using the CONCAT function.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your reply! I would like to try the CONCAT function. I now use for the X-axis:

    datevalue(daterange(DATE_ADD( TODAY( ) , day, -28 ),YESTERDAY()), "yyyyMMdd")

    Is it possible to CONCAT that with the other range? ( today - 56 till today -28)

    Hi Edwin,


    Can you give this a shot?
    datevalue(daterange(DATE_ADD( TODAY( ) , "5", -28 ),YESTERDAY()), "MMM d"),
    datevalue(daterange(DATE_ADD( TODAY( ) , "5", -56 ),DATE_ADD( TODAY( ) , "5", -29 )), "MMM d")

    In related news, keep your eyes peeled, we've got something coming down the line that will definitely address this issue of the X-Axis!

    Warm regards,

    Thanks Josh! It doesn't work, but I will wait for that X-axis update you mentioned! :)
