Matrix tile - custom data alignment

Hello everyone, 


I'm working on a new project where management wants to evaluate the how a resource is being utilized on a monthly basis. They have determined that any one resource has 174 available work hours per month and supervisors assign # work hours to tasks on a monthly basis. They want to see if resources are being over or underassigned work per month.

Hi @Anonymous ,


Can the option of "Show on rows" help you? 




The data in your expected result is not same as your original sample table. If you still need help, can you please share more details with us?
