Show Percentages of Week Total (not grand total) in Clustered Column Chart

I have survey response data showing responses over bi-week periods. I am trying to create a clustered column chart to show the preferred categories for that specific time period. The data values are showing as a percentage of the grand total and I would like for them to show as a percentage of the bi-week period.




In a matrix I have the option to show values as a percentage of column total, but in the clustered column chart I only have the option to show the values as a percentage of the grand total.











Is there a way that I can do this for the clustered column chart?

@Anonymous ,


Yes, the default percentage is different in this two visuals. A workaround is that you can create measures to achieve the total week percentage and drag that measure to the cluster bar chart.

Thanks for your response!


Could you explain to me how to create these measures to achieve the total week percentage?
