How to set by default Matrix visual to Expand All levels

Hi Team,

 

Is there a way to keep Matrix visual by default expanded to all levels (Even after a new row/column is added to Matrix).

Our requirement is to show all the levels of matrix without manually selecting Expand -> All option.

As of now when a new row/column is added to matrix visual data is shwoing in collpased mode and we need to manually expand.

 

Any work around/property can be set in Matrix theme to set expand all levels by default?

 

like this:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

By default, when a hierarchy is first added into the matrix, it won't be expand all levels. You need to click the vstephenmsft_0-1660813687626.pngbutton to expand.

I believe this will resolve it: go to the Matrix settings, Row Headers > Options, turn off Stepped Layout.

Thanks a lot @lfholland !!

Yes, this works! Thanks!

Thanks for the input @ghoshabhijeet🙂

 

Even if I save Matrix in expanded form and when I add a new filed in Rows section the newly added filed is collapsed.

 

This is happening both in PowerBI Desktop and Online Service, any other solution please.

@Anonymous  I have tried the solution I have stated in my earlier and it's working at my end. I am using the latest version of Power BI desktop. So, hopefully it should work at your end too. Please check.

This doesn't work. It works only when stable

@Anonymous  Thanks for sharing your query.

 

Try saving the PBIX file in the expanded form of your matrix visual and then publish the report. It should stay expanded if you have new data added to the matrix.

It kinda worked for me. Thanks.

Hello, I don't think this works completely.

I tried what you suggest and it worked at first but Power BI autoamtically switch back to default hierachy if you go to a different page and then go back.

It showed things expanding all down to next level the first time I open and load that page in the published site (supposed that's the page 1 of the Power BI). However, if I finish looking at page 1 and go to page 2 and then go back, the page 1 will be reset to the default hierachy where nothing was expanded. This created some confusion to viewers and I had to stop doing expand down all level.
