I believe this will be a fairly common request and it’s something I noticed right off the bat when designing a dashboard interface for one of my “aggregation tables” for an e-commerce store that’s being fed data from Shopify.
Use Case: New Customers vs. Churned Customers in a given Cohort Year
Currently, it seems I have to create two separate charts, like so…
Ideally, I would like to lay these two charts “on top of each other.” They’re both drawing data from the same table, so the X-Axis is the same. The Y-Axis is just 2 different columns’ values in the same table & rows.
+1 on this ask, we aren't able to fully roll out our reporting in Airtable until this is a feature. I love so much about Airtable as a user and creator; however, the interface is the only part of Airtable that our leadership really sees, so it needs to have this functionality.
+1... seems pretty obvious that this functionality would help transition entire data dashboards from other solutions like power BI, tableau, etc. to AT Interfaces. I've dabbled a lot with data these last 5 years but I love the ease of use & automations that AT provides.
Unfortunately, this limitation forces me to download the data through AT's API with python,
then either inject it in a google sheet or build a custom streamlit app in python to visualize it the way I want.
More EDA features would definitely give AT an extra edge I believe... nothing their engineers can't tackle.
I have wanted this feature for a while now. The charts are not nearly advanced enough. The functionality hasn’t been touched since they launched extensions years ago.
I like Airtable, but it seems as though they do something new, usually quite polished, but then move onto another new thing rather than refine what they’ve already got.
