I am trying to create the barchart where i have three date (1st Followup, 2nd Followup and 3rd Followup) fields in Opportunity object and those three date values should show in a grouped bar chart

I have attached the sample bar chart how this should look like.enter image description here

Can this be done through normal report or we have to go for Visualforce bar chart

Your Report Must be containing Only those three date(lets take it as field Reportdate__c) and it should be grouped over something which have days of week in chart AND with this you must have a formula field which should figure out the day of ReportDate__c (lets assume formula field api is days__c and days__c will be in x-axis). Now ReportDate__c and days__c should be grouped in report. Now select days__c as group in chart.

now you only need to write a code for day of week in formula field. best of luck.

  • Thanks Rudra. We can group multiple fields as per the suggestion above. How can we group with the 3 combinations given below 1) Reportdate1__c and Days_c 2) Reportdate2__c and Days_c 3) Reportdate3__c and Days_c in a single bar chart

  • Hey Hi Sorry for late reply. but here we having two fields ReportDate__c containing dates and days__c which is derived from ReportDate__c . Grouping of Report date on days__c will give the output we needed. Feb 25, 2015 at 8:42
