    Using continuous line charts against SSAS time series

      I have a simple star schema built in SQL Server. When I put a date in the column field, a measure in the row field and set both to be continuous, I can select the continuous line chart and get a nice drillable chart. Great.

       

      I then have an SSAS cube based on the same star schema. When I use the date and measure in exactly the same way in Tableau but from SSAS rather than SQL Server, I can no longer access the continuous line chart.

       

      I've played around with various ways of pulling dates through to Tableau, but I end up with the same problem. I can use the discrete line charts, but that doesn't provide the same level of functionality.

       

      Any ideas why this chart type is not available?
