If you are running into problems building the Sankey Diagram please check the following tip:
1. Members from the used dimensions can’t be the same. This will create an endless loop and crashes the Sankey Diagram.
you can solve this by adding a prefix in front of your dimension. For example: ‘from’ + [from dimension] OR ‘to’ + [to dimension]
2. Dimensions can’t have empty values. The Sankey Diagram will filter this.
3. Measure can’t be 0 or below 0.

Could you please post a sample of how data should be structured?
I’m trying to build the sankey, and the extension wont let me select the visualization type.
Perhaps it has to do with the way that I’m building the database.

Did you use a measure in your sheet? We have a example right here:Kevin RobertParticipant1 August 2018 at 09:47Post count: 2
I put Category, Segment, Region in a crosstable with Sales inside (a measure). I receive the same feedback “1 More Measure”. I added the Profit as Color, or text too….same issue

Thank you for the feedback Kevin,

We’ll keep tweaking (if we can) font heights and other details.
Yes, of course. We’ll consider Premium versions. In fact, one of our services is mainly based on a Sankey diagram.
The next step (one of many) would be the possibility of swaping the sankey columns, right?. 😉

Swapping sounds great, you mean changing the order of the dimensions in configure?Leonardo SampieriParticipant1 August 2018 at 15:29Post count: 11Leonardo SampieriParticipant1 August 2018 at 15:35Post count: 11
Of course, the sankey should update by itself, and I imagine it being manipulated by the final user of the dashboard, not the designer/analyts (me)
Perhaps, if not by drag and drop, what I guess must be really difficult, it could be done with a menu.
