Separate Fields Plotted on X and Y Axis in a Series Chart Created in an Operations Dashboard

Hi, This may have been answered elsewhere, but I have searched high and low to no avail. Is it possible when creating a series chart based on 1 data layer in an Operations Dashboard to have the x-axis pull data from one field and the y-axis pull data from another field? Both fields are included in the schema of the data layer the Series Chart is referencing. I am only able to plot more than 1 field as either separate series on 1 axis or separate categories on 1 axis.

I am trying to achieve similar results to charts I have created in ArcGIS Pro that have different fields plotted on each axis to display trends in the scatter plot (see attached image). I was trying to avoid exporting the plots out as images to embed in the dashboard. I would like the data points represented in the series dynamically changing from filters that I select in the left panel. I can see how to achieve this through actions placed on the filters, but I need the data plotted appropriately first. Thanks in advance!

I want to do the exact same thing and am surprised it's not already an option.

To be honest, operation dashboard is far away from the mature stage. I wonder how come their development team does not develop this type of important and commonly used features. After developing a few dashboards, I came to the conclusion that its not a wise decision to use it. So many limitations and bugs

It looks like you can do this using the serial chart option. You'll want to select the 'features' type. The category is your x value and the series is your y value. Took a second to work it out but it looks great! I wish we could add trendlines easier, though!
