Designing The Grouping Chart

Bring a circle from Symbols into the Glyph canvas.

Next, place Priority in the Fill section of Symbol1’s Attributes to add colors to the circles. The colors define a category’s priority status if it’s urgent or not urgent.

You can change the colors of the priority status depending on what you prefer. For this example, red is set for urgent and blue for non-urgent statuses.

Bring Region in the Y-Axis of the actual canvas. You’ll then see that the circles are properly categorized by region.

Next, change the stacking of the circles to Packing.

The circles in the chart will group together according to the regions. All circles represent the number of complaints. You’ll also see that there are 3 urgent complaints in the South region, 4 in the Midwest, and 1 in both West and Northeast.

You can validate these charts in the dataset in Power BI. You’ll see that the number of urgent complaints matches the number of red circles in each region.

Now, if you place Description in the X-Axis, you’ll see the complaints being categorized by description or by how it was issued.
