Weekend highlighting line chart

Howto add visualization of weekends?  Best would be to colorize weekend sections the line itself.  But this method below would be helpful too.

Please refer to picture below:

Visualize weekends.

 

 

 

Thank you!

Re: Weekend highlighting line chart

Add a column in Query Editor to check for weekends.

 

Click Add Column...Add Custom Column, and paste in the following:

 

if Date.NameOfDay([Date Column]) = "Saturday" then "Weekend" else if Date.NameOfDay([Date Column]) = "Sunday" then "Weekend" else "Weekday"

 

Then add that column as a legend to your line chart.

@gendat

If you use the ChrisHaas’s formula to create custom column, you would need to change the formula to the following:

if Date.DayOfWeekName([Date]) = "Saturday" then "Weekend" else if Date.DayOfWeekName([Date]) = "Sunday" then "Weekend" else "Weekday"

Alternatively, you can create a calculated column using DAX below. And you can create Line chart or column chart as shown in the following screenshots.

CheckWeekend = IF( OR(WEEKDAY(Table[Date])=1,WEEKDAY(Table[Date])=7),"Weekend","Weekday")
