AnyChart Extension for Qlik: Waterfall Classic Chart

Classic Waterfall Chart for Measure Based Stacked Waterfall Charts

Basics

Chart Types

There are two AnyChart Waterfall extensions for Qlik:

  • Waterfall Classic Chart – a waterfall chart optionally supporting stacked sub-bars. In general, it is similar to the default Qlik Sense Waterfall chart.
  • Waterfall Advanced Chart – a waterfall chart always displaying stacked sub-bars.

The choice between these two types depends on the structure of your data and what you are going to show on the chart.

This section explains how to create and configure Waterfall Classic charts.

Overview

The Waterfall Classic chart shows how an initial value is affected by a series of intermediate positive or negative values.

This tool is, in general, similar to the default Qlik Sense Waterfall chart but supports more data structures and provides a wider range of options. It can optionally display subcategories, visualized as sub-bars stacked within main bars.

You can configure the appearance of the chart: set the colors, adjust the legend, total bars, connectors, axes, and grids, set the layout, and configure the labels, stack labels, and tooltips.

Also, the following options are available: subtotal bars, split total, arrows, reference lines, reference ranges, interactivity, and calculation conditions.

Quick Start

This quick tutorial explains how to create a basic Waterfall Classic chart.

First of all, add an empty chart to your sheet:

  1. Go to Custom objects > AnyChart in the assets panel.
  2. Drag an empty AnyChart Waterfall Classic chart to the sheet.

Then add two or more measures representing categories and their numerical values:

  1. Go to Measures in the properties panel.
  2. Click Add measure and select a measure.
  3. Click Add measure and select a measure.
  4. etc.

Alternatively, it is possible to use dimensions: you can add one dimension and multiple measures or one dimension and one measure if the structure of your data requires that.

Please note that you can also create dimensions and measures from fields or add them by clicking on buttons on the empty chart.

Dimensions and Measures

Dimensions

Unlike the default Qlik Sense Waterfall chart, AnyChart Waterfall Classic allows adding a dimension. Do the following:

  1. Go to Dimensions in the properties panel.
  2. Click Add dimension and select a dimension.

It is possible to create a chart either with one dimension or with no dimensions. The choice depends on the structure of your data.

Measures

To add a measure, do the following:

  1. Go to Measures in the properties panel.
  2. Click Add measure and select a measure.

You can add one or multiple measures, depending on the structure of your data. Also, you can select the absolute or difference mode of interpreting measure values.

If there are multiple measures, their names are shown on the X-axis and in tooltips. To customize them,

  1. Go to Measures in the properties panel.
  2. Click a measure.
  3. Enter a string value or a string expression in the Label input box.
Data Structures

The Waterfall Classic chart supports different ways of setting data. You should select the one that best suits the structure of your data.

0 Dimensions + N Measures

You can add multiple (two or more) measures and no dimensions to create a non-stacked waterfall chart similar to the default Qlik Sense Waterfall chart:

  • The names of measures represent the names of categories, shown on the X-axis.
  • The values of measures represent the numerical values of categories.

1 Dimension + N Measures

You can add one dimension and multiple (two or more) measures to create a waterfall chart with stacked sub-bars:

  • The values of the dimension represent the names of subcategories, which are shown in the legend.
  • The names of measures represent the names of categories, which are shown on the X-axis.
  • The values of measures represent the numerical values of subcategories.

1 Dimension + 1 Measure

You can add one dimension and one measure to create a non-stacked waterfall chart:

  • The values of the dimension represent the names of categories, which are shown on the X-axis.
  • The values of measures represent the numerical values of subcategories.

Data Modes

The Waterfall Classic chart supports two modes of interpreting measure values: Absolute and Difference.

To select a data mode,

  1. Go to Appearance > Presentation in the properties panel.
  2. Select Absolute or Difference from the Mode drop-down menu.

The correct choice of the mode depends on the data:

Data Mode Description Usage
Difference Each measure value is interpreted as the difference between the current bar or sub-bar and the previous one.

(This is also the way how measures are interpreted by the default Qlik Sense Waterfall chart.)
This mode should be used if the measure or measures contain difference values.
Absolute Each measure value is interpreted as the absolute value of a bar or sub-bar. This mode should be used if the measure or measures contain absolute values.

By default, Waterfall Classic displays both difference and absolute values:

  • The labels of bars or sub-bars display difference values.
  • The stack labels on the top of bars display the sums of absolute values (subtotals).
  • Tooltips dispaly both absolute values and difference values (in brackets).

Depending on the mode, one set of values is taken directly from the measure, and the other is calculated automatically.

For example, take a look at this chart:

Such chart can be created by enabling the Difference mode and using the following data:

Appearance

Colors

AnyChart Waterfall Classic supports different ways of coloring the bars, total bars, and subtotal bars of the chart. In stacked charts, colors are applied to sub-bars. Some of the available color modes also affect the legend.

To select a color mode,

  1. Go to Appearance > Colors and Legend in the properties panel.
  2. Select a color mode from the Color by drop-down menu and use the available options below.

The table below explains the difference between different color modes and lists the settings available for each of them:

Color Mode Description Settings
Subcategory
  • In stacked charts, you can color sub-bars by a built-in palette. Its colors indicate subcategories.
  • A separate color can be applied to (sub)total bars.
  • The legend is colored automatically.
Palette selection
Reverse colors
"Total" color
Color totals as subcategories
Increase / Decrease / Total
  • Three colors indicate:
    • increasing bars or sub-bars
    • decreasing bars or sub-bars
    • total and subtotal bars
  • The legend is colored automatically.
"Increase" color
"Decrease" color
"Total" color
Expression
  • Bars or sub-bars are colored by expression.
  • A separate color is applied to (sub)total bars.
  • You have to manually add and color legend items.
Expression
"Total" color
Subcategory

In stacked charts, you can use the built-in palettes to color sub-bars by subcategory. A separate user-defined color is applied to total and subtotal bars (alternatively, you can color them by subcategory).

  1. Go to Appearance > Colors and Legend in the properties panel.
  2. Select Subcategory from the Color by drop-down menu.
  3. Select a palette and use the Reverse colors, "Total" color, and Color totals as subcategories options.

In this mode, the legend is colored automatically.

Increase / Decrease / Total

You can set three colors to indicate increasing, decreasing, and total (as well as subtotal) bars. In stacked charts, colors distinguish sub-bars.

  1. Go to Appearance > Colors and Legend in the properties panel.
  2. Select Increase / Decrease / Total from the Color by drop-down menu.
  3. Use the "Increase" color, "Decrease" color, and "Total" color options.

The legend is colored automatically.

Color by Expression

You can set a custom expression to color bars (or sub-bars in stacked charts). A separate user-defined color is applied to total and subtotal bars.

  1. Go to Appearance > Colors and Legend in the properties panel.
  2. Select Expression from the Color by drop-down menu.
  3. Enter an expression in the input box and use the "Total" color option.

The items of the legend have to be added and colored manually.

Coloring by expression sets colors using a user-defined expression. When coloring by expression, you can define both what colors to use and which values to use them with, enabling more control over how colors are used in the visualization. For example, you might highlight values of particular interest, or differentiate between values within different value ranges. Coloring by expression can also be used to color a visualization by values not included within a visualization.

Examples

Here are a few examples to show what you can do with expressions by color. Please note that expressions do not affect the legend, so in these examples it is configured manually.

Example: Coloring by Category

Pick(Match(Quarter,  '2020 Q1', '2020 Q2', '2020 Q3', '2020 Q4'),
'#d29b9b', '#85bfc7', '#85a6c7', '#9b9bd2')

In this example, 4 colors indicate 4 categories (quarters).

Example: Coloring by Measure

If(Sum(ValueDifference) < 0, '#e7cbcb',
If(Sum(ValueDifference) <= 100, '#cbe3e7',
If(Sum(ValueDifference) > 100, '#85bfc7')))

Here 3 colors indicate 3 value ranges.

Reference Lines

There are two types of reference lines:

  • A reference line is a horizontal line intersecting the Y-axis in a given point. It indicates numerical values.
  • A dimension reference line is a vertical line intersecting the X-axis in a given point. It indicates category names, represented by the values of the dimension. Such lines are available only for the 1 dimension + 1 measure data structure (the only one where the X-axis displays dimension values).

You can add one or several reference lines and dimension reference lines. Lines of both types are only drawn if their values fall within the displayed range of values.

Please note that it is possible to specify the value defining the position of a line either as an exact value or as an arbitrary expression.

  • To configure the stroke, use the Stroke, Stroke type, and Thickness options.
  • To configure the position of the label, use the Label orientation and Label position options.
  • To configure the font, switch the Font slider and use the Style, Color, Size, Family, and Shadow options.

Reference Ranges

There are two types of reference ranges:

  • A reference range is a horizontal area intersecting the Y-axis in a given range of points. It indicates a range of numerical values.
  • A dimension reference range is a vertical range intersecting the X-axis in a given range of point. It indicates a range of category names represented by dimension values. Such lines are available only for the 1 dimension + 1 measure data structure (the only one where the X-axis displays dimension values).

You can add one or several reference ranges and dimension reference ranges. Ranges of both types are only drawn if their values fall within the displayed range of values.

Please note that it is possible to specify the values defining the position of a range either as exact values or as arbitrary expressions.

Interactivity

By default, the following interactivity features are available: selection, snapshots, and tooltips. To disable or enable them, go to Interactivity in the properties panel and switch the following sliders:

  • Selection
  • Snapshots
  • Tooltips

Calculation Conditions

AnyChart supports calculation conditions: you can set a condition that needs to be fulfilled (true) for the object to be displayed. If the condition is not fulfilled, a custom message is displayed.

A calculation condition is useful when a chart or table is very big and makes the visualization slow to respond. A calculation condition can then help so that for example an object does not show until the user has filtered the data to a more manageable level by applying selections.

To add a condition, do the following:

  1. Go to Add-ons > Data handling in the properties panel.
  2. Enter an expression in the Calculation condition input box.
  3. Enter a string value or a string expression in the Displayed message input box.

For example, the following expression allows showing the chart only when the user selects less than 4 quarters:

If(Count(DISTINCT Quarter) < 4, 1, 0) 

If there are too many quarters, AnyChart displays this message:

'There are too many quarters (' & Count(DISTINCT Quarter) & ').'
