I am trying to create a stacked bar chart in my "Charts are fun" table. I need it to look like the attached Excel Chart. Please advise? I have attached what I have been able to produce in Qbase.  Can't seem to get the "start date" be located on x axis.

What I might suggest is take a look at the Timeline Chart type to see if you can get a little closer to what you're hoping to make. A timeline chart is like a Gantt chart that typically is used to show how a projects or tasks line up in relation to each other with in terms of time.

After you take a look at that, does that still not quite get what you need? Check back here if not, and let us know how we can help.

Hello Lynne,

While we can provide the stacked bar help steps; based on your attachments, you seem to want a timeline  Gantt chart instead to match your excel table. That will show the Start dates on an X axis as seen in the attachment.


See the help links below:

This should get you started. If you run into issues, you may put in a support ticket to assist further.

Thank you,

I have used the Timeline report...not crazy about how it looks.  Thank you, tho.  And, unfortunately, on the horizontal stacked bar chart, the only option I have for the x axis is "Data values on x axis". No option for placing the dates on the x axis.
