See what I’m saying? If I narrow the range of dates to graph, the graph should take into account that range and set its scales according to the data that falls within the date range.
For example, taking this data set:
Feb 1: 5 views,
Feb 2: 40 views,
Feb 3: 25 views,
Feb 12: 48 views,
Feb 13: 443 views,
Feb 15: 6987 views.
If we set the date range to Feb 1-12, the y-axis should be capped at ~50.
If we set the date range to Feb 1-13, the y-axis should be capped around ~450-500.
If we set the date range to Feb 1-15, the y-axis should be capped at ~7000.
If that’s possible, it would be neato! ^_^
(Update: I think I figured out what it’s doing. Maybe?
So, it doesn’t show up while in the “tunneled down” view with just the selected dates showing, but in the regular view with filters removed it graphs a comparison graph in gray that’s the prior month’s page view history at the same times that month. Last month, my graph peaked around 760, so I think that portion of the graph, within the specified dates of the month, scales to ~800?
Problem is, in the “tunneled down” view that specific “last month comparison” graph doesn’t show up but still maybe impacts the overall graph scaling?
So, perhaps the solution is to either 1) show the last month’s data comparison graph on the tunneled down view and scale the tunneled down view graph based on the highest of all graphs shown in tunneled down view, or 2) Don’t show the “last month comparison” graph at all AND don’t count it toward the “tunneled down” view graph’s scaling. 3) Give an option of whether or not to include last month’s comparison graph in the “tunneled down view” and either include it in the scaling if graphed or exclude it from scaling calculation if it’s not graphed.
*I think* that’ll fix the issue, if I’m figuring correctly what’s going on? It’s subtle, so there’s a chance I might be wrong what’s going on, but *I think* that’s it…? Check my logic? Happy to be corrected. ^_^
Hope that was all cogent and made sense. Just to clarify, by “tunneled down view” I just mean the graph with date selection criteria applied)
