Set range of x-axis to today (24 hours)

Hi all,


I have a data set of production volumes by time produced and production line. E.g., see today's output:

I am trying to create a clustered column chart showing these values for the last 24 hours. I am able to filter the chart so that it only displays today's data, however I don't know how to set the x-axis so that it always displays the full 24 hour range. I.e., at the moment, the x-axis range is set by the range of the data:

Is it possible to force the x-axis range to be the full 24 hours?

@rmcmun you should split your date and time column and have another dimension in hour model for 24 hours, and have a relationship with your main table, and on x-axis use time from this new time dimension and x-axis time column, in the drop-down, select "show items with no data", so it will give you all 24 hours. So there is a bit of modelling work you need to do.
