Line chart with total as a Legend

Hi,

 

Is it possible to show a total of sales as a legend in line chart?

 

I have got a dataset that contains Product(A,B,C), Date(2006,2007,2008) and Quantity(10,20,30) columns , Currenlty I'm getting a line per each product in line chart but I want to show a Total(Sum of all products) line.

 

I'm not sure whether it is possible or not in the power BI.

 

Any inputs would be much appriciated.

 

Thanks

I was looking for an answer to this and didn't find it - I did solve my own issue so I thought I'd share the answer here. 

 

I have traffic/transport data so what I want to do is: see the volumes by direction but also the total volume as a line. E.g. southbound, northbound and total. 

 

What I did: I created two quick measures, under calculation selected "filtered value", my base value is the traffic volume and the filter is a direction (so one measure is for south and one for north). Then add the two new quick measures as values in the chart as well as the unfiltered - and DONE 🙂

Hi @Anonymous ,

You could create a calculated column to as a legend, like this:

Total = SUM('Table'[Quantity])

You could add filters based on your actual data model.

@v-xuding-msft , This won't works for me, as all measures needs to be created manually, what if I have thousands of categories?

 

I want to have line per each product and totla line.

 

Hi @Anonymous ,

There is a limitation for this scenario. After draging column into the "Legend" field, we can only add one value into "Value" field. For your request, we can't add another column or measure about total values when we have put the "Product" column into "Legend" Field. There are two workarounds that you could try.

  • If there are not many products in your table, you could create measures per products to show them.

 

a = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Product] = "a"))
b = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Product] = "b"))
Total = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),ALL('Table'[Product]))

  • If there are many products, please try to use a slicer to filter per products

 

Measure = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),ALLSELECTED('Table'[Product]))
Total = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Amount]),ALL('Table'[Product]))
