How to customize axis labels?

Yes, I know there's an Axis Settings option but it doesn't appear to be able to give me what I need...

 

Basically, I need to able to vary the tick increment. I have data for days 0, 3, 7, 10, and 14 and I need those to be the x axis labels. I can't do an increment of 3 or of 4 because then, obviously, one or several of those days would not be on the x axis. Is there any way that I can customize/choose which axis labels/ticks I want specifically? So that I can have those exact axis labels?

Not knowing more about what type of chart, etc. you are using, you might be able to get what you want by just changing the Modeling Type for the column in question to "Nominal" and see what the outcome is.

Sorry, 100% completely new to this... I'm in Graph Builder and I'm trying to get a scatter plot.

But this indeed did work. Sorry - like I said, 100% new to this! Thank you!
