Activity Visualisation Over Time

Hi guys and thank you in advance for your help.


I'm looking to visualise a person's activity in the day, so it may be something like



12 - 8 sleep

8 - 10 eat

10-12 work

12- 2 eat

2-5 2 work



I have a dataset with data for hundreds of people over multiple years. 


Off the top of my head, it would be something like a column chart with a different colour for each section and the X-axis would be different dates and times. Or something where the Y axis is date and the X axis is time. I'm pretty flexible on how we achieve it, but I can't seem to make PowerBI do what I want it to?


Does anyone have any advice?

@Mgrike  either you can use clustered bar chart or line and clustered column chart. Moreover, you can use Guage chart with adding cards to it. Additionally, there are more custom visuals available in Power BI. It's all depending on how you want to show the data.
