How do I color the last point of a line chart differently?

We are implementing a weekly trend line chart. Given the nature of being weekly, the last data point won’t be completed as long as we view the chart in the middle of a week. We would like to color it differently, e.g. in grey like this:

One way I can think of is to paint the same data series for two times, one as the line chart and the other filtering out the rest but the last value as a scattered graph. However, it’s super tedious when there are a dozen of charts.

Is there an easier way to do it?

Yup, you arrived at the same answer that’s been referenced in Benjamin’s linked post— There’s not currently an easier way to do it, but it is a pretty flexible solution (You’re right that it is tedious if there are many charts to do this on, though).
