Selective Data Labels

Hey Friends,

 

I've run into my first PowerBi Request that I haven't been able to work around. 

I have built a basic Line chart. I've got Data Labels turned on. 

 

I've been asked to show only a few select Data labels on the chart. I need to remove the majority of labels but only leave the ones the users want. 

 

Any idea how I can keep only the Data Labels requested? 

 

Thanks!

Hi @Teige,

 

As far as I know, there is no such option to show only selected labels on the line chart currently. I would suggest you add it as an idea on Power BI Ideas forum to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy

Re: Selective Data Labels

I ended up voting up a couple of existing ones.

 

My favorite is a more general call for more control over data labels:
