Radar chart

Hi,

 

I'm trying to add a radar chart in my Power BI report but I think it isn't working well... I'd like to change de order of the "Category" field.

I'd like to show the radar chart like this one:

Thanks!

Hi @aitor,

 

Based on my test in the Radar chart, there is no OOTB feature available for us to specify direction of display category field. Currently, the radar chart displays category field in anticlockwise direction from A-Z automatically.

 

For your requirement, I would suggest you send a feedback to Power BI Custom Visuals Support alias: pbicvsupport@microsoft.com.

 

If you have any question, please feel free to ask.

Thank you for your time @v-qiuyu-msft, I'll contact withe Power BI Support.

Hi, did you ever get a response back from this? 

 

I have a similar question, except my 'category' variable is hour of day (as a calculated column that extracts 'hour' from a SQL datetime stamp using the FORMAT() dax function). Currently the radar chart displays hours in 24hr format, with the 00hrs at the bottom, and goes anticlockwise.

What I really want is the 00 to start at the top and go to 01, 02 etc. in a clockwise direction. I can't see a way to do this in the custom radar chart - perhaps there's another custom visual that does what I want?

 

In Tableau, there was a similar chart referred to as a 'Coxcomb' chart, but it was pretty complex to construct. 

 

In terms or ordering your categories, you don't do this in the visual itself. You do this to the table that stores your category data.

 

For example, let's say you have a table for days of the week. It has an Id column and a Name column (Monday, Tuesday, etc.). Go to Data, select your table, select the Name column, then go to the Modeling tab and select Sort. Choose to sort the Name column by the Id.

 

This should then reflect in your visual.

 

Hope that helps,
