Set the following layout options.
When you enter multiple By variables, Minitab enables the Show all combinations checkbox. Select this option to create a separate time series plot for each combination of groups created by the By variables. If you do not select this option, Minitab creates a plot for each group of each By variable.
For example, the first By variable has 2 groups, Male and Female, and the second By variable has 2 groups, Employed and Unemployed. If you select Show all combinations, Minitab creates 4 separate plots for the combinations of Male/Employed, Male/Unemployed, Female/Employed, and Female/Unemployed. If you do not select Show all combinations, Minitab creates 4 separate individual value plots for Male, Female, Employed, and Unemployed.
Select how you want to display the y-scale.
Make the Y-scale the same across multiple panels.
