Dynamic x axis granularity change for time hierarchy

Hi All, 


I have a clustered bar chart ( time hierarchy on the x axis) and a matrix table ( with time hierarchy in columns).  How do I make x axis on clustered bar chart dynamic ( i.e. the granularity should change from YY to Q to MM etc.  if relevant time period is selected in the matrix table.


Currently when I click on a month in the matrix table, clustered bar chart shows the correct total however it is showing it at the hierarchy level that I set via drill through ( instead of dynamically changing the axis to month or week)  As using live data feed cannot add any new columns to the model. 


Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Thank you

Hi  @Ann345 ,

Power bi can realize the time to click the matrix to correspond to the time on the clustered bar chart.Select Qtr1 in the matrix, and the clustered bar chart will display the date and data in Qtr1.

But power bi does not support synchronously changing the name of the corresponding time
