KPI Icon sets for use in table and matrix visualizations
Many of the Power BI Community have come from a background of using Power Pivot in Microsoft Excel. Excel had a fantastic way of using built-in conditional KPI icon functionality to add impact and information to table and matrix visualizations. The red-yellow-green circle icon set is valuable as an easy-to-interpret indicator of whether something is on track (or not) against defined goals.
This functionality is glaringly absent from the Power BI Desktop. There was a previous request for tis that has been marked as “completed”, but it’s still missing.
We should also be able to change the font and font size of the numbers in the KPI. Maybe combine the following suggestion into this one....
Agree on this 100%

Would be a great feature!
I agree. This would be great. I more great would be if you can custom the KPI icon.
We use this a lot with SSRS and also even PerformancePoint, and we would like to swap out PerformancePoint with PowerBI.

The problem is even worst. I started my model few months ago in PowerPivot, using KPI functionality. I migrated it to PowerBi due to severe performance problem, and continue its development in PowerBI. The migration tool was great in migrating the KPI functionality and it creates like a "group calculated field" with three Childs: Value, status, goal. Great!!!
Now the problem I face is I cannot create new ones

Agree on this 100%, this is a huge piece that would make the tool much better.

I totally agree. This is a great functionality in PowerPivot that PoweBI is missing!
I hope you can add it soon!
