Showing data points on line graph

Hello,

 

Currently my line graph is just a simple line so when there is data missing it is hard to tell because the line connects between the two points, I would like to see the data points like this picture below that i found on the power BI website explaining new features but i am unble to figure out how to do this.

 

Thank you

Try going to the format section, under Shapes change Show Marker to On.

Nope doesnt seem to be there Smiley Sad Is it possible that the function isnt avaible because I have too much data?

In this graph power BI says it is automatically binning my data so maybe that is the problem.

Perhaps a clustered column chart (left) would work better for you in this situation (although I don't see any missing data in the example you showed) ?

Hope this helps

Hi David,

 

A column chart does work a lot better and show the data more clearly.

 

Thanks for this suggestion!

 

Still not sure why i wasnt able to get the points in the line graph but I guess I don't need that anymore!
