Displaying How far ahead or behind goals as weeks progress

Options

I have an etl that is joining a google sheet that has weekly goals, to a dataset that have the actual weekly sales. I am currently showing the week by week results in a grouped bar card… each week side by side, actuals to goals. (see image)

Is there a way with the data I have, to show how far ahead or behind we are up to the given week. Example we are in week 7, and I'd like to show the cumulative Sales for those 7 weeks vs the cumulative Goal for the seven weeks, and have that update each week to see how we are doing w/o having too add them up from the grouped bar chart?

    The easier approach is to use Domo's built in chart type "Running total grouped bar".

    If you want to use the chart properties option, you'll need to use a line/bar combo chart. Then you can set the series on left scale to 0 and set number of running bars to 2. I don't see much advantage to this approach given your use-case. This is better if you want to have both individual and running total on the same chart.

    @user04612 you could use the Domo provided running total line or bar chart cards.

    There is also a setting in Bar/Line charts to create running totals. You can find this in General > Number of Running Total Lines.

    If neither of these options work for you. Please let me know and I can help you create a beast mode.

    Am I looking in the right place? (see image)… I do not see the option: Genera > number of running line totals
