If I understand you correctly then what you want to do is definitely possible.
If you’re ever stuck then the best calling point is the micro-site here, and specifically the reference documentation here. You can also find a host of tutorials here and on the Library & Learn page of the old micro-site here. Tutorials are always a work in progress as they date quite fast with new versions… but all the concepts in there are the same, even if the labels have changed.
But on your specific query what you need to do is setup something like the example below… this is using the Bar/Line - Chart.js element (but you’ll find the same options on the other elements). Once you’ve dropped the element onto the page you need to do two things:
- Run a Search within the Category data list box for the data items you need to count. For example, this could be a field of Yes / No data from questions responses.
- Tick the Use Category data as values box - this will do a count of matching responses from your category search and use that as your values. So, in this example it will count all the Yes’s and then all the No’s.
Final point, best to keep an eye on the Chart Tools thread as amCharts is gradually being retired - currently Premium is now only available as Chart Tools, this is soon to be Free as well.
