        I can summarize how it should work, it should work as well as the Performance point version when properly configured.

        If you are interested in providing feedback on how the decomposition tree should behave in Power BI please reach out to me at juluczni@microsoft.com. I am looking to schedule some 1:1 calls (or focus groups depending on the amount of interest generated). We have lots of exciting options under consideration and would love to hear your thoughts!

        This will really help out clients that a looking for a truly intuitive drill down feature on metrics/measures. Clients expect to be able to click on a metric and then choose the drill down path. This would really help stop clients going..."oh but in this tool I just right click and drill down based on x dimension". The visual aspects to this needs to be customisable in terms of tooltips, measures and items to display and controlling the level of drill down allowed.

        I agree with the comments below

        This is great news, but the visual needs fully interactive capabilities in order to be a real breakthrough. Without the ability to slice & dice the data, it won't be nearly as useful
        and will command less user adoption

        Hope it gets bumped up the list

        YAY!!! AWESOME.
        Please make it a fully active visual, with the ability to slice other visuals by clicking, have right click drill through to other pages, allow tooltips, like a native custom visual.
        Don't give us the half-hearted "here's a pop up to look at, but doesn't interact with anything" that disappointed us so with the decomp. tree in Performance Point

        I can't help believing decomposition trees are way more value than what is being prioritized. I guess not enough folks have been exposed to decomposition trees in the past to understand their value and hence other not so great features get more votes and hence priority :-(

        To implement breakdown trees in a way that will perform well and be scalable we'll need to enhance some deep architectural foundations in the Power BI visuals framework. The enhancements will allow a visual to send multiple different queries to the BI model and "stitch" them together to a single graphical representation.
        This architectural enhancement is a significant effort and we will start it this sprint with the intent of delivering this summer.
        Once completed it will open the door to a whole new class of visuals, including the breakdown trees.

        There is a custom visual called Sankey.. maybe if that helps any way?
