Custom, or alternative, values for data labels?

I have a series that is a bar chart, which represents y/y growth.    I'd like to have the label show the Y/Y %, not the Y/Y $ amount.    But it seems like I have only the one option, because "Show Values on Chart" is a checkbox.    In excel, you can choose "Value from Cells" as an option for a data label in chart.   I think that's what I'm after.    Any suggestions?

    Hi Nick, 

    Thanks for the post! 

    There isn't an option to show a label on your series that is not the specific value of that series. With that in mind, if you'd like to have your y/y % value displayed on your chart, you'll need to have a series on your chart of your y/y% data. Once that's set up, you can select 'Show Values on Chart' to display these values. 

    I hope this clarifies things - please let me know if you have any questions around this! Feel free to also submit a ticket at support@klipfolio.com
