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.
Before adding to Legend
After adding to Legend
Go to Solution.
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.
More details, please refer to this attachment.
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).
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...
You could go to formatting —— Bubbles, then you could set the bubble size like below.
