Multiple level hierarchy matrix colors

Hi all,


I am creating a multiple level matrix in PowerBi, i have a table that i use for "titles" between rows.


So basically the hierarchy is:2019_05_01_09_43_06_Window.png









I would like to have different colors for all levels for the full rows or at least have level 2 and level 3 the same color.

It works if i have only two levels, but when i expand Commercialresult2 (level2) level 1 and 2 get the same color.


Any way to solve this?


Many thanks!

Can you please explain how you got the first two hierarchies to auto change backgrounds? I've been trying to figure it out for a while and I only see JSON files that do something similar, but not what I need.

Hi @Joe_100 

As tested and researched, it is impossible to format color conditionally based on rows.

Here you could submit an idea so we may improve this feature in the feature version.
