Chart Labels


We have several line charts and combination charts that need data labels. We are trying to migrate our stakeholders over to using Yellowfin but they are locked on that labels feature in Excel. Can that feature be added to Yellowfin? It seems that labels can be used in some bar charts but that does not meet our needs.

Thanks for your help.

This feature has been logged as an ehancement request, and will be implemented in a future build.

Please let me know if you have any other queries.

Is this feature already available ?

Chart labels are now supported on charts.

However, they are still not supported on line charts, an enhancement request was raised (TASK ID = 112739).

If you come across a chart (other than line chart) where you cannot see a chart label, please send across your current YF version and the type of chart you're trying to create.

Hi David,
