    Hi Sayed,

    Alerter (conditional formatting) concept only applies to text data only. So there is no such option called Alerter for Charts.

    But if you have any specific requirements please let us know. We can help.

    What are you trying to achieve? You can build a workaround to bar charts by creating variables to suit the alerters:

    Good sales

    =[Sales Value] Where ([Sales Value] > 100)

    Average sales

    =[Sales Value] Where ([Sales Value] Between (25;100)

    Bad sales

    =[Sales Value] Where ([Sales Value]<25)

    Then use a stacked bar chart and colour the three measures based on your alerter requirement.

    Just an example of what you could do.
