Sankey weighting not reflected accurately in visual

Hi all,

 

When using a Sankey chart, the thickness of the ribbons does not reflect the weighting

 

E.g. screenshot below:

Number of counts from Port Kembla to Auckland is 2,654. From Nagoya Aichi to Auckland is over 8x of that. Yet in the visualisation, the ribbon thickness is very similar thus misleading.

Is anyone else experiencing something similar? Is this a known problem and is there a solution?

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance,
Wes

Re: Sankey weighting not reflected accurately in visual

I am experiencing the same thing. My Sankey chart is weighing $74 million the same as a $.4 million. I've tried recreating it with updated Power BI, different excel sheet, etc. and it still isn't working.

Also, if I roll back my Power BI to the version (May) that the Sankey Diagram chart worked fine for me in (with the same data that is now not being weighed correctly), it now won't even plot it.

Yes.  it was working so beautifully and now the customer is getting irritated.

Hi,

 

I have just noticed that the Sankey diagram has stopped working completely. It isn't plotting any data.

I also noticed that any reports using the Sankey diagram in the service have also stopped working. Even if these were published quite a while ago.

@robertsbd, are you testing Sankey in Desktop App or in web service?

If in Desktop, please try to update it to the latest version.
