Boxplot drill down by date



I am making a box plot, with hirarcihal date variable including year, months, week and day on the x-axsis. When I drill down within year, I don't get one box for each month within year. I only get one box for each month over all years. This is not a problem in every other types of plots I have tried. Why dosen't it work for the boxplot?

He meant there is no box plot in the default visual, if you imported the visual from the Appsource, which power bi does not support drill down to such third part visual.

Did you use the forked arrows or the double parallel arrows or ?


It is possible that the third party implemented this incorrectly. I am assuming you are using a third party visual?

Thank you for your response!


It is when I use the forked arrows, because I want to have one box within e.g. year and month.


I use the same date variable in other bar plots. Here it works very fine to drill down with the forked arrows, so I got one bar within each year and month. 


I am not sure what use mean with third party visual.
