This Sankey visualizes people moving from one region of the country to another.

  • Under the Format paintbrush, there are several options available for customizing the Sankey.
  • Under the Data labels section, you can turn on or off data labels for the diagram. This section also allows you to adjust the size and color of your data labels.

  • Next, you will find the Links section, which defines the color that should be displayed on the linked line between each value on the diagram. In the example below, they are all the default black, but you can easily change these by selecting the dropdown next to each flows path.

In addition to these properties, you have a set of settings that appears on every visual to adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio.
