Re: Concatenate Labels option does nothing?

Thank you @OneWithQuestion for pointing towards the right direction to solve the problem:

 

Concatenate Labels option works for the following scenario:

[1] When you first select your clustered column chart and then add your entry to the "value" and then add your fields to the "axis" and then switch your formatting "concatenate label" off

 

[2] without selecting a chart type,  you first select the fields for the "axis" (e.g. month, quarter, year) and then select the measure for value e.g. units sold and then switch your formatting "concatenate label" off

 

Concatenate Labels option does not work for the following scenario:

without selecting a chart type,  you first select the measure for "value" e.g. units sold and then select the fields for the "axis" (e.g. month, uarter, year)  and then switch your formatting "concatenate label" off - (nothing happens)

- to me this looks like a bug  

 

I hope that i have been clear on how to work around this problem. I have tested the above 3 appoaches a few times

I tried to follow the workaround earlier, but this basic functionality is still broken? See screenshot. I'm using the April update.

Re: Concatenate Labels option does nothing?

@sykr0n  did you do the following order:

 

step 1:  select the stacked columns chart (do not select the fields before selecting the charts)

step 2:  select the entry for the "value" field

step 3:  select the multiple fields for the "Axis"

step 4:  go to formatting --> x axis --> switch concatenate label to off

I just tried the workaround and it still doesn't work.  By the way, I'm using the Power BI Desktop client (April Update), not the service.  Maybe, it's working in the online service? 

Re: Concatenate Labels option does nothing?

Same here as well. I also tried to use it on a table... It has the ootion but enabling it does not wrap column headers.

Re: Concatenate Labels option does nothing?

I kept trying and it looks like for "Concatenate Labels" off to work correctly and show the hierarchy of X-Axis fields, you have to also make sure the chart is NOT sorted by the Value field or by an X-Axis field that is different than the one you have drilled down to. Not sure if the the behavior seemed to be more clear/consistent/intuitive or it's just gotten more  complicated  with more features.
