You will notice that Visualization moved Tax Amount to the Size Deck and ShipDate and Proft to the Rows Deck and Freight to the Column Deck. We have moved ShipDate to the Color Deck so that each year is displayed in a different color.
You can also add a measure field to vary the size of the shape. In the following example, we have added Total Amount from Measures into the Size Deck. This alters the circles so that their size represents the sum of Total Amount for each City.
