How can we improve Power BI?

Ability to use multiple fields on a legend like an Excel pivot chart

When I build a pivot table in Excel I can have a legend with multiple metrics. So I can then compare a Scenario, and a price, and a region. I cannot seem to do this in PBI where I can only have 1 field in the legend

    Please can this be implemented it's a real blocker to plotting benchmark data alongside another legend

    It's true. I really need a line legend when I use the column and line combo chart so that I will have several benchmarks to show in the plot. And the reason I want it to be a legend is because users can select the benchmarks they need in the slicer. But now, I can only add multiple lines in the value field manually and it is fixed.

    Yes Please.
    My scenario is where as a test, each model has a series of 3 or lines (which the line chart handles fine), but to compare two or more models' lines to each other.

    As a current work-around, I am overlaying two line charts directly on top of each other in order to compare their lines. But this is not very flexible - say in case I want to compare a 3rd model.

    I've just spend 4 hours trying to do this - I just can't belive that it's still impossible !!

    Current workarounds for this are extremely fragile and difficult to maintain. This feature would save me a ton of headaches.
