Use case example: Revenue from new products

The above example plots total monthly revenue of an organization with revenue from new products segregated using a stack, indicated by green color.

This chart uses 2 Y-axis. The revenue amounts are plotted on primary Y-axis and percent contribution of new products is plotted on secondary Y-axis. 

This chart template is particularly helpful in comparing total category value, represented by height of each stacked column as well as highlighting how a sub-category contributes to the main category, represented by both – height as well color differentiation of the sub-category.  

The combination of numeric and percent values helps in quickly identifying the cumulative quantum in absolute terms as well as individual portion in percentage terms.

Also see bar of pie chart for contribution of each product to total revenue.


% Revenue from New Products = [ Revenue from new products / (Revenue from existing products + Revenue from new products) ] x 100
