Dates and times are probably the most commonly used dimensions in Power BI charts, or any charts for that matter. Power BI contains a number of features that help to display data with respect to time. Features like the automated date hierarchy reduce the need for users to construct or connect to a date dimension table (even though they likely should), which helps casual users get to solution more quickly. This is particularly true of using date/time on the axis of a chart. There are a lot of options for displaying this data, and they may not all be that well understood. This article will attempt to explain a number of them.
