Vertical line/marker in a line chart

I am trying to build something like a timeline, showing a KPI over the time. simple Line-chart, first dimension is the time from past to future, second dimension is the department, expression is a simple sum. Now I want to mark some specific days with vertical lines. How can I achieve this (Values are available as fields in an DataIsland or as variables)?

I'm assuming you mean something like the following:

If so you need to add Reference Lines Object properties > Presentation > Reference Lines where you can set the position via an expression. The key thing is that the X-Axis must be set to 'Continuous' under the 'Axes' tab.

Hope that's of use,

Sorry for answering to an old thread. Is the option "vertical line/marker" also available for QlikSense?
