How to append string to timechart data labels?

Hi, I have a column timechart with numerical values, and I would like to add strings, or characters, after these values, when displayed on the dashboard.

I have tried to append the string to the results themselves, but it seems like timechart is unable to populate non-numerical data.

Any help or alternative ideas on how I can achieve the above results visually? Thanks.

Hi @dzyfer,

you should use eval before timechart and use the by in timechart, something like this:

| eval date=strftime(_time,"%H:%M")
| eval shift = case(date="07:00","A", date="15:00","B", date="23:00","C")
| timechart span=8h aligntime=@d+7h sum(meter) AS "output" BY shift

Ciao.

Hi Giuseppe, thank you for the reply. 

My search is roughly along these lines

...
| timechart span=8h aligntime=@d+7h sum(meter) AS "output" 
| eval date=strftime(_time,"%H:%M")
| eval shift = case(date="07:00","A", date="15:00","B", date="23:00","C")
| eval "output" = 'output' + " " + shift
