Design View Selection Comments

Topic: Project

Type: Column: Stacked

Title: <enter a meaningful title>


Other report Types that work well include Area: Stacked, Bar: Stacked, Line, and Spiderweb.


Bottom Axis: Category, or some other meaningful field such as Business Objective, Owner, Department, and so on.

Left Axis: Add the Count field multiple times based on the filter option values. For example, to show count by priority within a stack, add the Count field the same number of times as there are possible Priority values; add the Count field four times if the Priority has four values (Immediate, High, Medium, Low). Can do other filter fields instead, such as Status. After adding the Count field multiple times, click each field's gear icon to change the Display label and apply an appropriate filter:
