Power BI to handle staffing Plan

We have staffing plan for each project, it is on weekly basis, and it is always in an excel format with the following standard format :

 

 week 1week 2week 3week 4week 5week 6….
employee 1404040404040 
employee 2404040404040 
employee 3202020202020 
employee 4  4040   
       

 

I loaded the data into power BI, and tried to show the total staffing per each week, month, quarter or year, but never made it sucess, it looks like the week definition never matched the system. 

does anyone have a good way to handle such kind of excel spreadsheet data?

 

Many thanks in advance

@Richard_Pan two things to make it work:

 

Week 1, week2 etc, doesn't make sense what it refers to because this can be in any of the year. What does means it will be nice to have a date column and then use date dimension and everything will work from there.

 

2nd, it will make sense even excel sheet has pivoted data, but do unpivot in Power BI and then use matrix visual to visualize the data.
