Show data labels

You can show data labels for every measure in your chart, or configure labels separately for each measure.

Configure all data labels

To turn on all data labels for a chart, click the edit chart configuration Edit chart configuration icon image icon, and select the Settings menu. Select all labels. Note that you cannot select all labels when you fit to screen, unless the visualization does not have enough data points to require a scroll bar, and thus defaults to fit to screen mode.

Configure all data labels

To further configure the labels, by showing unrounded numbers for example, configure labels individually.

Labels that appear on a dark background can be displayed in a lighter text color, making them easier to read.
