Plot Unsummarized data on X and Y chart

I need to plot time data on an X axis and variable data on a Y axis, without summarizing either.  It looks like this is not possible with a Scatter Plot.  What visualization do I need to do this?    Or what is the trick to do this with a Scatter Plot?  Can someone point me in the right direction?

 

For example; I need this data to look like this chart, but in a dashboard.

Thanks

@Anonymous create a line chart,

 

put x column on x -axis

put y column on y-axis

put x column on legend (you can turn off a legend in format) and you will get the following output

Hi @Anonymous,

According to my understanding ,you want to create a scatter chart without aggregating all the values on the X-/Y-axis, right?

Just drag X to X Axis, Y to Y Axis,then the scatter chart looks like this:

As  the offical document says,

Does your scatter chart have only one data point that aggregates all the values on the X- and Y-axes? Or maybe it aggregates all the values along a single horizontal or vertical line?

Add a field to the Details well to tell Power BI how to group the values. The field must be unique for each point you want to plot. A simple row number or ID field will do.

If you don't have that in your data, create a field that concatenates your X and Y values together into something unique per point:

 

Is the result  what you want? If you have any questions, please upload some data samples and expected output.

Please do mask sensitive data before uploading.

 

Best Regards,

Eyelyn Qin

That is the chart I am looking for.  I just need to figure out how to get rid of the lines 🙂 .  Thanks for your help!  

 

I haven't fgured out how to give the "kudos".  I'd gladly do that if I can find how.

 

Thanks!
