How can we improve Power BI?

KPI Customization (Font Size)

Need to be able to change the font size on the KPI tool. A stoplight visualization is needed most, but a set font size on the KPI tool makes it very limited regarding usability and alternate solutions.

    Looks like we can control indicator text size in Power BI Report Server now, but not goal text. Goal text is often too small and our business users want it larger for readability.

    Please make this update. KPI is one of the most useful visuals in the business. We should be able to change the font for this visual. Thanks!

    So many visuals do not allow tailoring of size, which is necessary on some reports, so it would be of significant benefit here

    That changes will make a huge difference in usability on that visual. Hope we an see it in near future release.

    Please add the ability to modify the font and also to change the wording like Goal. Some time you may be comparing current year volume vs the previous year volume and show the growth rate. in those scenario, if we have the option to change the word "goal" to Prior year would make the KPI more meaningful

    Please look into this idea. As a work around we are currently using the table visual where we can set the size as we want. The we get the desired layout if we do not show totalts. Pleeeease look into this.

    I love the simplicity of this visual, but I need it to be able to make the font size smaller!

    What everyone else said. How is this not an option? Nobody can read the goal. Why hasn't this been updated already?

    This is making creation of a KPI summary page very awkward in not being able to adjust the font size. Please sort!

    Ok power bi team....looks like you guys never used KPI before, this is ridiculous. I know they are important, but to not be able to change a font is crazy.

    This is needed, Power BI team!! Please fix this. It is a ridiculous oversight on the developers part.

    This is needed badly. We have 2 projects suffering because we’ve had to use one of the custom KPI visuals

    Please please update the KPI card, it's a great card but given the default goal and distance font is white and tiny, makes it unusable!
