Finding Below-Average Sales Per Hierarchy Level in Power BI

Soheil Bakhshi has an interesting problem to solve:

Now, the requirement is to show the above behaviour in a “Column Chart” (yes! visualising time series with column chart, that’s what the customer wants) and highlight the columns with values below average amount in Orange and leave the rest in default theme colour.

So, I need to create Measures to conditionally format the column chart. I also need to add a bit of intelligent in the measures to:

– Detect which hierarchy level I am in
– Calculate the average of sales for that particular hierarchy level
– Change the colour of the columns that are below the average amount

Let’s get it done!

Read on to see how you can do exactly this.
