Last week, I created a Mekko chart with data shown in two dimensions, which allows easy and quick comparison between multiple variables:
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:

It turns out a little messy so I will remove this sort:
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.
