Line chart view data by year and month

I am trying to view my date by year and month.  Issue arises when I filter on more than a single year, I still only see 12 months on my plot and it appears that it is aggregating the data from each month over both years.  What I would like to see below the axis is for 2016 all the months data values then right bedisde it 2017 and the months with data vlaues.  I think I am missing some very obvious as this is a pretty standard way of pltotting time data.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Re: Line chart view data by year and month

To do that, you can create a new calculated column in your date table (if it is already not there) which is the concatenation of your year and month. Then, if you place that in the axis, you will get 36 months when you select 3 months. This type of chart helps us in seeing a long term trend.

 

If your aim is to compare months of each each year, you can place Year on the legend and then you will see 3 lines. This type of chart compares how we are doing every month compared to the previos years.
