Bar / Combo Chart - Start Left

We have several charts with lots of months in it. And when you display it, it starts at the right side.

But the most recent data is at the left side. I want my charts to start at the left side. Does anyone knows how to do that?

So instead of this:

I want this:

I know I can change the sorting order and display the most recent data at the right side, but I want to keep the most recent data at the left side.

Re: Bar / Combo Chart - Start Left

Hi Isabelle, you're right, that was an option added in 3.1 (What’s new in Qlik Sense 3.1? ‒ Qlik Sense)

I don't know any built-in possibility to sort the scroll aligment without that option and I think that update the server to 3.1 will be easier than create a customized extension for that.

Maybe someone can give you a hint on how to do this but if Qlik added the option in 3.1 I think it wouldn't exists an easier workaround.

Like I Said: Then my chart starts with the most recent data at the left side. I don't want that, I just want the selection bar starting right.

Do You mean to say  by default scroll bar from bottom should be on right?

Hi Isabelle,

While editing your graph, go to the Appearance settings -> Presentation and change Scroll Alignment from Start to End.

Do you use Qlik Sense 3.1?

At my server (3.0) it looks like this:

No possibility to sort the alignment..
