Stacked Columns not showing all data labels

Hello, 

I'm new to Power Bi and am having an issue with showing some data labels off of a stacked column chart that I have.

The labels appear as expected within the larger portion of the graph, but I would like to also show the amount of the smaller, less visible portion on the top.

Is there a way that I could show the labels outside the columns for the dark blue sections?

 

 

Any help would be appreciated

No, at least not for that visual. Pie chart or donut charts do offer you the possibility to place them "outside end" but not stacked column charts. Indeed is a gap. You can workaround it with a tooltip if the options I suggested you does not fit your need.

Scale & size of the visual matters a lot when putting data labels. Since the dark blue portion of the column is quite small, labels will never fit, even if you try to reduce to the minimum the data label size. 

Try playing a bit with the data lebel options per series:

Or switch the visual to a stacked bar chart, clustered bar chart or clustered column chart.  Hope this helps. 

Thanks for your input.

Is there really no way to do this? Even having the data labels outside of the dark blue section would be fine. This seems to be a considerable oversight on the part of the developers.
