In the earlier smaller multiple charts, we could not see the separate Y-axis against each charts. And by default it shared the same y-axis for all small multiple charts.

As you can observe in the screenshot provided below, chart has only one shared Y-axis, and it is very hard to evaluate the sales trend for lower charts because it looks close to a horizontal line.

Now, you have the capability to plot each small multiples chart against a different y-axis and then change the automatic scaling of each axis.

Go to the Y-axis property and turn off the Shared Y-axis, by default its turn on.
