Deleting Some Duplicate Data

Hello! I am very new to power BI so forgive me if this is simple question. 

 

I am trying to show who is on a particular project, while not displaying redundant information.

 

Data comes into power bi ( more or less)  like this :Capture.PNG

 

Note: There is code to take an ID and match it to a name.

 

This issue is for the project "Notebooks" there are two BA's working on it, and when I create a table to display who is working on a specific project I get this :

Capture1.PNG

 

When really want this to dispaly:

 

Capture2.PNG

 

Any Ideas / suggestions would be much apprerciated!

 

Thanks

Re: Deleting Some Duplicate Data

Hi @Anonymous  ,

Here is what I suggest:


> Create a new MATRIX visual 
> Add all relevant columns (as below)
Capture5.JPG

 

> Hover your mouse on the visual and press on Capture4.JPG

     button until greyed out.

> Go to FORMAT tab > Row Headers > Turn off STEPPED LAYOUT
Capture6.JPG


> You should then get the below matrix

Capture3.JPG

Re: Deleting Some Duplicate Data

@RobinDeFal 

Thanks for the inital solution this worked until I had two columns with more than person in it. So instead of getting this:

one.PNG

I would get this:
two.PNG

 

Any ideas? Thanks
