Adding Gridlines to Matrix columns

I am trying to add borders/gridlines to separate the years in a date hierarchy for a matrix (as seen below).  Is there any way to do this? When i turn gridlines on, it applies to each column, is there a way to only do it for the years?

Re: Adding Gridlines to Matrix columns

HI, @jbhwcm

     After my research, I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now.

But you can color the total column to achieve your requirement.

For example:

select matrix visual

then click Format->Subtotals->Font color and Format->Grand Total->Font color

I would also like to be able to do this... or at least some way of better distinguishing the column groupings (in your case, the Years)

I too would like have such a feature to add border to specific column in matrix view

@SH-VE @jbhwcm @gidster99  this can be achieve by turning on vertical grid and you can set the color the grid line and the thickness
