Using Small Multiple

You can assign a column you want to group by and repeat at the Repeat By control. Values in the assigned column are treated as discrete values (as text).

Sort Order

The sorting order of the charts is ascending. If you assign a factor column to the Repeat By, it respects the order of factor levels.


You can open the Repeat By property dialog by clicking the gear icon at the Repeat By control.

Following options are available on the Repeat By property dialog.

  • Number of Columns

    • Auto

    • Static (1 - 15)
