How to do this?

Hi @khush19 

 

In this scenario, it doesn't support to add a y-axis constant line for the stacked columns. If you add a measure to Line y-axis area, it uses the line axis rather than the column axis.  

 

You may calculate the max value for the line axis. Then multiply 0.85 to the max value in a measure. Put this measure to the chart as a line. It will appear at the 85% height position of the column.

Hi @khush19 

 

Create a measure like this:

constant line = 0.85
 
and use that in the Line y-axis field of the visual like the below:
