Creating a matrix sorted by date

Hello everyone,


I hope you can help me with this matrix. I have the following table that I want to display in a matrix. The table is sorted (just as I would like it to appear in Power BI). This table consists of the approval process for 3 documents (IC-GP-FR-010, IC-GP-FR-011, IC-GP-IN-009). The approvers are assigned in order (Column "Responsable"). Each approver has a start date (Column "Inicio Real") which is when their turn to approve the document begins, and an end date (Column "Fin Real") which is when they finish approving. Once an approver completes their approval, the next approver in the row can proceed to approve.

However, in Power BI, when I try to create the matrix, it appears disordered. I have tried to sort it by adding an index column. However, it only appears with options for showing it as a sum, average, and not without summarizing. Therefore, I cannot sort it using the index.




I hope you can help me. I appreciate it in advance.
