Changing display name for an axis

You can specify your own display name for an axis.

The display name can be changed for any axis, for example, the X-axis, the Y-axis, or the Color axis.


  1. In the column selector on the axis, click the arrow next to the column name.
    A popover opens that shows which column and aggregation are selected on the axis.
  2. In the field at the bottom of the popover, enter the wanted display name and press Enter.
    The new display name becomes visible on the axis.
  3. Click outside the popover to close it.


In the bar chart below, the display name on the Value axis is changed from Max(Temp) to Highest temp. The visualization title adjusts automatically.
