Display HH:MM in Y axis



I am new to PowerBI and would like to get some assistance. Thank you in advance.


I have a table w/ a time stamp.  I am able to display those values into HH:MM by adding format; however, as trying to plot them into a bar chart, only the decimal numbers appear.


Is there a way to format those decimal numbers into hh:mm or is there a custom visual that I can use to make this happen?

Hi @Anonymous,


It's not supported to display HH:MM format in Y-axis use built-in visuals, as Y-axis used to be displaying aggregated values, generally it's number data type.


Also based on my research, existing custom visuals can't display HH:MM format in Y-axis as well.
