How does Domo support slopegraphs?

Full disclosure: I'm really not so smart that I knew the name "slopegraph" without looking it up. It's a chart type that I've admired several times over the years at fivethirtyeight.com. It's about the most economically and easily interpretable chart type I can think of for showing relative and absolute change over time. Here's an example:

I just looked it up and, no big shock, Ed Tufte invented this chart type in The Visual Display of Quantitative Data. Below are links to a couple of write-ups:

Slopegrapths are fantastic for "tellings stories with data." Clear, economical, easy to interpret, and easy to interpret accurately

Is this something Domo has? (I haven't found it.) If not, can I offer this as a feature request.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out! At this moment, we do not have this specific type of graph.  If you would like to submit a feature request for the product, there are two ways to best do that. The first is to head over to https://dojo.domo.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/idb-p/Ideas and submit your idea there. The second is to submit your idea via the "Feedback" portal in your instance. To access this, click on your grid icon in the top right of your DOMO instance, and then select "Feedback" from the drop down.

     

    Thank you!

  • Is anyone able to help out with this request?

  • Thanks for the confirmation, and I'll follow-up on your suggestion of making a request in the Ideas forum. I've got a couple of ideas to put in over there once I've got the time to work through a decent sample data set to illustrate what I'm talking about.

    Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to bring me up to speed.
