Scatter Chart - Color stauration disabled when using Plat Axis



We are trying to use color saturation to plot risk over time using a scatter chart. However, when the play Axis is enabled the color saturation is disabled. Is there any reason behind this?


Kind Regards

Any news about this? I have also encountered that color saturation is disabled when using play axis.
I cannot seem to have access to the 'Issues' link posted earlier.


Kind regards,


I'm also having this issue - it seems that the Color Saturation well cannot be filled when the Play Axis is used. Is this issue fixed? FYI I am accessing a multi-dimensional cube and attempting to use a measure for Color Saturation, with Weeks on the Play Axis. ON their own Color Saturation and Play Axis work fine - I just cant seem to have then BOTH in use at the same time (which is what I need).

You are absoultly right that the color saturation feature is not available if we add a field in Play Axis Property with a scatter chart visual. Based on my test, once Play Axis contains a field, data color revert to default and Data Color is missing.


This is already reported issue. As you can see in the below ideas section.





Thanks & Regards,

The link you provided @BhaveshPatel is to a private forum - plebs like myself don't have access to view that post 😞

That is unfortunate. There are many issues with the play button funcitonality, unfortunately.  I think I will have to look into a solution outside of Power BI.


In any case, I was not able to access the idea link you posted. I get a message indicating it is a private forum.
