Ability to modify the bar width in charts


Description of the enhancement:

Capability to vary the width of bars in Anaplan Bar Charts -See 'Gap Width' in Excel


Example of the enhancement:

Users can adjust the width of objects in a Bar Chart, much like they can adjust the width of columns in a module.


Business reason for wanting this enhancement:

We feel that this would help them to provide more easily accessible information compared to static column formatting. It would ease user acceptance if common graphs followed existing formats.

  • Status changed to: In Review
  • I wholeheartedly endorse this. 

    Today I got a request from an end user to do quite a bit of different manipulations, including this, on graphs that will be used to present to the CXO level of the company.

  • I also endorse this fully, on detailed plots very thin columns can be difficult for our end users to read, usually we would use area plots, but where data is non-continuous this can be problematic.


    Thanks for raising

  • We definitely need this feature, we need to make sure the user experience especially on CXO level is smooth and such visual difference make an impact.
