Power BI Blog: Mekko Chart (cont'd)

I would like to do some further editing works on this chart. I go to ‘Format’ mode. Here I can sort the data legend by descending order:

I also want to change the colours of legends to match with my organisation’s colour scheme, by clicking on ‘Data colors’:

I add the title for the chart as well:

Next, I try putting data labels in place:

Therefore, I remove the data label, and here is the final product of my creation today:

That’s it for this week, check back next week for the next blog in the Power BI series.
