    Is it possible to use 2 datasources with a single bar chart? I am trying to create a bar chart that would show gift card orders and redemption over time in the same chart.  I have 2 datasources, orders and redemptions.  (These are OData returning json to a kendo datasource).  

    I was hoping I could do something in the chart like:
     series: [
                    name: "Purchased",
                    field: "Amount",
                    aggregate: "sum",
                    categoryField: "PurchaseDate",
                name: "Redeemed",
                field: "RedeemedAmount",
                aggregate: "sum",
                categoryField: "RedeemedDate"


    Trying that directly didn't work so I was wondering if there is something I am missing?  Thanks so much,

    Hi Jayme,

    Apologies for the delayed reply.

    Kendo UI Chart can be only bound to a single data source - you will need to join the data from multiple data sources in order to display it in the chart.

    On a side note, the individual series data can be bound to separate arrays of data. For more details as well as an example check the following forum thread:
