Filter data but not X Axis

Currently when I filter by date it filters the X-Axis as well but I would like to keep all of the months for the year and just filter the data instead.

 

 Full year:

 

 

Timeline gets filtered as well:

 

If I filtered back to February then I would expect march and april to be empty but still have the rest of the months.

Re: Filter data but not X Axis

What I did to fix this was I created a new table with only the month name and month number (so I can sort properly) and then I created a relationship between my new table and my DimDate table. Then I replaced my axis with the month name from the new table.

 

New Table:

Created relationship with DimDate table:

Now it works as expected!

Full year:

Filtered:

Note: I also had to check "Show items with no data" as well as filter out Months that are blank because it created a blank month for some reason.
