Vizlib Waterfall Guides - Setup Wizard

Vizlib Waterfall has a Setup Wizard to help you create a visualization quickly and easily. 


Setup Wizard

It's activated when you add a Vizlib Waterfall object from the Custom Objects menu to a sheet (Figure 1).  

  • Once you've added the chart, you'll be asked to add the dimension (Month) and measure (New Customer Count).

Example - Variance (Two Measures, One Dimension)

In a Variance waterfall consisting of one dimension and two measures (Figure 5), the first measure shows the starting point and the second measure (where you can set the labels and colors used) will be the end point. Any dimension values in the chart will automatically display the expression

(end measure - start measure)
