Dashboard - Combination Chart with More Options

The most used chart type on Cognos reports is the combination chart where multiple columns and lines are sharing the same axis. Currently Dashboard only supports one column and one line on different axis and different scale and this really prevents wide spread use of Dashboards.

    Dashboard - Combination Chart in latest Visualizations 11.1.0


    End user developed a dashboard using Microsoft excel, now I am converting it into Cognos. There is a clustered column chart with line on it, to compare the multiple trend matrix’s and percentages. Currently I don’t see this type of graph in Cognos 11.1.0 visualizations. Can you please make it as high priority to add this visualization in the future releases.

    Congnos dashboards are almost useless without this kind of visualization. This should be the first type you included. I can't understand why you didn't!? Now our organization has a big issue with the new cognos solution, even before we've launched it. Please make 230+ users happy and prioritize this asap!
