how to compare sessions by month year by year on one chart?

Hi,

 

any ideas how to set up a report that would compare sessions by month year by year on one chart?

 

I would like to know how many sessions my page got in Jan 2017, Jan 2016 and January 2015. Right now I can only compare two years maximum (eg. this year comparing to previous year). I would like to do that for several years.

only 1 compare (to the previous year or period) can be on one time series..

but this problem can be solved by creating data source (sheets) and making 3 columns (for each year) - then it would be different metrics and they could be in 1 time series.

Could it be all in one time series where sessions are on Y-axis, each month is on X-axis and each year is one serie?
