Assistance With Creating a Bar Line Graph


Hello, I am trying to figure out how to create a line graph / bar line that will give me the variance change year over year based number of claims per year.

I am not sure if there is an easy way/setting in Domo to automatically create a percent change YoY for me, or if I need a beast mode to do this.

I have tried the following formula and put it in my Y-Axis, but it didn't seem to work.

(Case when Year(`Open Date`) = Year(curdate()) then `Claim Type` end / Case when Year(`Open Date`) = Year(curdate())-1 then `Claim Type`end) -1


I have an Open Date column and I am basically just counting the number of claim types each year. I am hopefully trying to get for example:

% Change from 2008->2009 from 665->818 ~ 23% increase..

2009->2010 ~ 818->511 ~ 37% decrease

    Hi @SLam

    I'd recommend reformatting your data with a date offset dimension dataset and using a beast mode to calculate the different between last year and this year. I've written about this before here:

    You can then use a Line + Bar chart to define the YoY % values.

    Hello @GrantSmith , thank you for the information.

    Am I able to skip to the section below:

    Or will I need to complete the above steps in order to complete the steps in the screenshot? I do not have access to MagicETL and MySQL to do these steps.
