Legend for a matrix timeline in powerbi

Hi - i created a timeline matrix in powerbi that shows planned and actual and the overlap (photo below). I used the code below the photo to populate the table. I am wondering what is the best way to create a legend that explains the red is planned, blue is actual and purple is where they overlap. All of the videos use a status to create a dynamic legend, but I don't have a status, thought i could create one based on the dates in my table if necessary. The data is in a stand-alone table with 2 relationships, one to date, and one to project. Any ideas on the most efficient way to create this?

You could create a dimension table with "enter data" to create the legend values you are using as rules, then relate it to the field you are using in your rules (or add a conditional column on the values in PQ) and drop it in the legend well. 

I don't see the legend well in the matrix visual or did i misunderstand your suggestion?
