Creating a milestone slippage chart

Hi I have a data set similar to the below




Each month, I get an update for milestones A-E (Months are the row headers)


and I want to build a chart like this:




I can't seem to add in a 2nd date for the Y axis, I'm guessing people don't usually do this sort of thing, so probably needs to be in python or R?

nb the blue triangle is a nice to have and isn't in the data set - it covers the data points that have effectively happened to show no further updates will happen for that data set.  its data points would be the same on each axis, ie X:01-Jan-19 Y:01-Jan-19, X:01-Feb-19 Y:01-Feb-19 etc

Hi timneo


Yep I don't think thats possible with the default visuals and I don't know of a custom visual for a slippage chart yet. 


You could be the pioneer! 


I'd be looking to R or building something custom to solve this one.

Just so I understand this, both R and PY require a non default install for use.  So anyone with the desktop client will need R or Python install to view the output.


I assume if the server has python installed, anyone can view it on the server, just not desktop?  Our IT is locked down, so I'll have to get them to install R/python before I can make any changes.
