Sort in Matrix Visual

Hi Experts,

 

I just want to know, is there a way to get "sort icon" in all the columns in Matrix visual as marked below?

Hi, @LP2803 

 

It is unsupported to sort by multiple columns in a matrix visual currently in Power BI. The multiple sort feature is only available in table visual as mentioned in the document . I'd like to suggest you post a new idea in Idea Forum and add your comments there to improve Power BI for making this feature coming sooner.

 

Best Regards

Allan

@Pragati11 Thanks Pragati,

 

Any other alternatives to achieve the same? 

Hi @LP2803 ,

 

You can use normal Table visual or if you want to represent it in a better way, use Table Sorter custom visual.

A tutorial on this visual is as follows:

Thanks @Pragati11 

 

However, this doesnt help me as i need two rows of headers in my visual.  

 

I strongly recommend PowerBI team to enhance the matrix visual with these simple sorts which saves a lot of time for its users.
