Nested values in xaxis

Suppose the data is of the format

TestDate  TestName  Result

04/19         A                10.6

04/19         B                 12.8

04/19         C                12

04/20         D                10

 

I want to create a chart where the x-axis values will be nested or grouped. Ie, its should have dates and Test names grouped in dates. Y axis should be Result. Below example shows a sample for 04/19 data.

@perplexedDev

Ok clarification. You actually don't need Nested X-Axis - just do as in image below

This is what Nested X-Axis and the Idea I posted in previous reply was really about...

Re: Nested values in xaxis

That didn't help any... I still get only one line, and one value on the X-Axis.  It looks like I'll have to stay with Excel spreadsheets since Power BI doesn't even come close to matching the functionality there at this time.

Re: Nested values in xaxis

Yes I agree this is a vital function that has been missed and I whichever way I try to do this I cannot get more than one group to appear on the X axis making Power BI rather limited.

Re: Nested values in xaxis

I cannot find a way to get more than one group to appear on the X axis either and this is a vital missing feature making Power BI much less useful as a result.

 

I tried to vote on the user voice site but it appears to be broken at the moment:
