My data looks something like this (scope covering 1 month). The idea is to make a scatter plot with Datetime as the X-axis and Metric as the Y-axis. I was able to make the desired graph using the line chart, setting Datetime and Metric as the axes, and setting X-Axis options it to Continuous.


My problem is I want to show more X-Axis tick labels beyond the 5 days it automatically chooses. Ideally, I wanna show each day as its own tick (see below for a graph made in Excel). Is that possible?



TL;DR: I need my Line Chart in Continuous so it acts like a scatterplot the way I need it to work, but it only shows 5 days as as tick labels. I need all 28-31 days in a month to have their own.

Hi  @BobtheBI_lder ,


You can create a computed column and set it to Data type – Date Formate – yyyy-mm-dd in Column tools:

Date1 =


Set to Date in X-axis, not Date Hierarchy


The calculation and display are then aggregated based on specific dates

Change X-axis type to Categorical. Then you have you adjust size of visual to display all the dates without scrolling. As long as you filter data by month it shoudn't be that bad.


I don't think that there's any other way.
