Create a Horizontal Bar Chart

Chart creation has been greatly simplified by using the new Dataset Reporting feature - see Dataset Reports Overview (New in 5.3)

Bar charts can be displayed with a vertical X Axis to take advantage of the landscape chart feature in Metric Insights in order to improve the visible differentiation between bar values.  There is a setting X Axis is that if set to "Vertical" results in bars that are displayed horizontally from left to right, rather than the usual bottom to top.

Note: this option is not available if the x-axis is based on date or time
