Manager Review 2 2 4 4 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
Self Review 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

Cause

'Series Ordering' for the chart has been set to 'Ascending’ or ‘Descending’
However, due to their design logic, Radar charts do not support series ordering customization * and hence the strange behavior.

*Note: This limitation with radar chart applies to all charting / reporting tools and not just to SuccessFactors.

Resolution

Change Series Ordering to ‘Native’ through the following steps:

  1. Select the Chart component.
  2. Click ‘Edit Formatting’.
  3. Under the ‘Chart’ tab, set ‘Series Ordering’ to ‘Native’.
