Line chart- multiple lines and selections

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to setup a line chart, that has the following features:

  1. The number of lines is dependent on what I have selected in a table (matrix). I.e. either one of more lines.
  2. The possibility to select between different KPIs. I don't need to show multiple KPIs in the same line chart, but it should be possible for the user to select which KPI that should be shown in the line chart.

 

Has any of you tried this before?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Line chart- multiple lines and selections

hi,

 

I actually found a solution to the case with the number of lines. I just added markets to the legend in the chart, and then made a slicer next to it, which is only linked to this specific line chart. That works quite well.

 

Regard the other problem: Dynamic KPI selection in the line chart.

 

I am working with three different KPIs on the page, and will like to be able to switch manually between these three KPIs in this line chart (only on at the time). I have seen something like this other places, but would like to get guidance on how to do this.

Hi @Morten_K,



 

Regard the other problem: Dynamic KPI selection in the line chart.

If I understand you correctly, one option is create separate measures to do the corresponding calculation for each KPI first(measure1, measure2, measure3), then use SWITCH function to create a new measure to return the corresponding measure for the selected KPI, and show this measure on the line chart in this scenario.

 

You may need to add a new table which has a column of KPI Type if you don't have yet. Then you can use this KPI Type column as a Slicer on the report.

KPI Type
KPI1
KPI2
KPI3


In addition, the formula below to create the dynamic measure is for your reference. Smiley Happy

Measure for Selected KPI =
SWITCH (
    FIRSTNONBLANK ( 'Table1'[KPI Type], 1 ),
    "KPI1", [measure1],
    "KPI2", [measure2],
    [measure3]
)

Hi @Morten_K,

 

Without knowing your tables structures, it's hard to say if it is possible to, or how to achieve your expected result. So could you post your table structures with some sample data and your expected result against it, so that we can better assist on the issue? Smiley Happy

Re: Line chart- multiple lines and selections

See if this video helps.  The presentor creates a 'Measure' Table then uses If Contains to display / hide lines on a chart...
