Removing blank cells from matrix



So I have the following table set up which is just 2 fact tables and 2 dimensional table



I need a matrix view to show list of clients, and for each one show the total SUM of Talk times, Ring times, and Hold times (Hold split into attempt, cold, warm), a bit like this;




Iv tried to build this in power bi but running into some problems. For example my matrix is appearing like this:


As you can see there are blank cells where there are no values (eg there should be no ringtime for Outbound-->Hold). So, although its showing a blank cell, I need this entire column (Outbound->Hold->Ring) to not appear in the matrix as Ring does not belong to Hold. And AttemptHold, WarmHold does not belong in Ring.


How can this be acheived?


I have also inlcuded the example pbix file here

Re: Removing blank cells from matrix

Hi @rax99 

Unfortunately, it is not possible to remove columns in a matrix as you expected.

To get your desired output, we may work with some workarounds.

I will give my solution as soon as i figure out.


Best Regards
