How to arrange the date chronological order on Scatter graph

I have a scatter graph visualization with the following:

- X-axis: Date of Event

- Y-axis: Abs Gains/Losses

- Size: Abs Gains/Losses

- Legend (Color): Business Group

 

If I DO NOT add the Business Group field to Legend, I am able to get the x-axis to sort chronologically.  Not sure why the sorting changes as soon as I pull in Business Group.

 

Please help!!

Hi @donaldm,

 

I have made a test to reproduce your scenario.

 

We could find that the sort will be affected by the lagend if you add the legend field.

Here is a workaround which may help you.

 

You could try this custom visual Dot Plot by MAQ Software which could achieve your expected output by my test.

Hi @donaldm,

 

difficult to troubleshoot without knowing your data, but is the value you put on the x-axis formatted as date datatype?

correct - the x-axis is formatted as date type (with removed date hirearchy).

Re: How to arrange the date chronological order on Scatter graph

Hi Sherry,

 

Could you advise why this issue occurred? I was using a default MS PowerBI visualisation!

 

The visualisation you recommended has some issues with the sizing.  It seems the bubbles are smaller than the default visualisation...

Hi @donaldm,

 

You could go to formatting —— Bubbles, then you could set the bubble size like below.
