Treemap Visual

Is it possible to sort this visual when the data source is driven by a date column?


I'm trying to use it as a type of calendar / diary view for tasks that are scheduled over a selected period.


I understand the tile sizes are determined by the underlying data values and thus have to fit entire visual but it's difficult to read when the dates are scattered across the visual and not in any chronological order. Maybe there is a better visual suited to this purpose?


I've looked at the calendar Visual but can't get that working either - the tooltip for each tile would need to show details of what's scheduled on each day. The Calendar visual doesn't appear to have that sort of flxibility.


I don't think you can control the sort order. How about just using a bar chart. I guess it depends what you are trying to achieve.

Yeh...that would probably work but I wanted a visual that would more closely match the Outlook calendar.


The Treemap & Calendar visuals do work to a degree but fall short in terms of flexibility (i.e. sorting the tiles, adding additional extended tooltips etc.).
