Enable selection of the default scroll position for the x-axis on a chart. For example, on a line chart with dates as the x-axis, when not all of the data can display in the view at once, the scroll defaults to the beginning/left end of the x-axis and the most recent dates are at the far end causing the end user to always have to scroll to see the most recent data. If you could set the visual to default to the right end, then the user would only have to scroll if they wanted to see more history.

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

I Have many charts with this issue. Is very frustrating for end users to have to always scroll to the right to see latest data, if the user doesnt do this every time they could arrive at incorrect conclusions regarding the data. Also if the page is used in a presentation with live connection to the report they would have to do the scrolling or their audience will see incorrect data also.

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

This would be a very useful feature to have control over the scroll bar position for charts using dates on the x axis.

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

Please fix this as it is logical to show the data left to right and show the latest data on loading.

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

This is a bug!The default position must be the most recent data and not the old one!Please fix it!

This should have been there from the beginning. Really basic thing to want.

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

After more than three year asking for, that really should get fixed.Showing new data at the left end of a time series chart is as counter intuitive as it can get.....

RE: Set default x axis scrolling position

My favorite part is a Microsoft employee on another thread telling a user to sort the x-axis in the opposite direction.In no world do you have the most recent date on the left of a graph.
