How to create a timeline in Power BI? There are many ways to do that, but in this article, we will explore a purpose-made timeline visual for creating stunning Power BI timeline charts that are smooth, interactive and let you feature up to 25 series on the same chart. Read on as we dive deep into the features of Drill Down Timeline PRO and give you tips on how to get started!
When you’re creating reports in Power BI, conditional formatting is one of the most powerful tools for data storytelling. Color is one of the main factors in visual salience, and you can use it to make your reports give a lot of information to the viewer with just a quick glance.
First impressions matter, even when you're creating Power BI reports. When your users open your report for the first time, they need to be presented with good-looking visuals that present data in an easy-to-read way, otherwise they'll leave confused and with more questions than before.
This field allows you to define the display units used within the visual. Note that only certain names can be used here. More about these definitions can be found here.
The two date fields allow the visual to properly calculate DAX measures used in series. `Date Hierarchy` allows you to define the levels of granularity. The `Date Value (X-Axis)` field allows the visual to connect the actual date/time to then be connected to the levels provided in the hierarchy.
This might be due to the data setup in the 'Date Value (X-Axis)'. If you have time units in the hierarchy, make sure that the column used in 'Date Value (X-Axis)' has a Date/Time format and not just Date. Also, double-check if you have the actual timestamp as part of the data.
You can control this through formatting options. Formatting options > Initial Display Unit. More information can be found here.
Despite there being very few differences when it comes to formatting, the Timeline visual allows you to use DAX calculated measures as values in Series, and still has the ability to move between the hierarchy units.
