Motion charts can be obtained by using page shelf.

A simple motion chart can be a change in sales over different years or the growth of the sum of sales over the years.

For example to create a waterfall chart to show the running sales over months in a year- 

  • Drop the Month of the date field in page and column shelf.
  • SUM([Sales]) in Row shelf and add quick calculation of running total.
  • AGG(-SUM([Sales])) in Size shelf.
  • Select show history and select All for show history and select show marks under show history window.

Final visual would be seen as below - 

Hope it helps!
