Area Chart - Axis Date Not Aligned to Data

Hello Community,

 

Per the screen shot attached, I'm trying to focus on data for a specific date. When I mouse over a specifc point in time, my data is perfect. The visible date in the Axis however, doesn't align to my data. 

 

My intention is have a Jan 29 date show in the Axis to align with the value point date of Jan 29.  So that my chart reflects data for every Friday. My source data has two columns; Date and Amount. 

 

Thank you,

Unless I'm missing something blatently obvious, that capability isn't in the current version of PBI (2.116.996.0), or it's moved.  You think for a MS product they'd put more effort into giving us the normal capabilities that Excel does for visual data representations.
