Columns with multiple enteries

Hello there,


I have data in the table in the below format. There can be multiple entities involved in a single task. What could be the best way to clean up this data (or use table relationships) in order to create a logical dashboard with slicers for each headers (Task, Project, Work Type, Team Responsible)?

Task 4Project CPlanning, ManagementTeam A, Team B, Team C
Task 5Project CResearchTeam B

Hi @TinyElephant ,

Firstly, split the columns which has multiple values. You can do this by goint to transform data -> Split Column
after that you can use slicers for each column. 
@TinyElephant -> if this helps you, then please hit the thumbs up & mark it as a solution. Thanks.

I think, Split into Rows will be better because splitting into columns will create many columns which will be a problem while plotting them into visuals. Any thoughts?
