Custom Labels for X and Y Axis

Is there a way to customize the labels for the X and Y axis?  I can't seem to find it in the general formatting tab of my chart.

Can you be more specific on what you are trying to customize? Categorical labels on the axis or custom title for the axis?

My company recently released a free custom visual on App Source that allows custom labels on column charts.  https://appsource.microsoft.com/en-us/product/power-bi-visuals/WA200001785?tab=Overview  With the advanced editor you can pick which columns or DAX measures to use for the labels.

I have a similar issue. I have a table of kpis and a field called units. I want to use the value in this field to label the yaxis, is this possible

@Devine You can try using Text Box in Power BI Desktop Tool

Depends on what you are trying to customize, are you using the new report canvas and are you clicking on the visualization and then on the "paint brush" under the Visualizations area over on the right?
