Would be awesome to have Charticulator as a visual option within desktop. Similar to PowerQuery in desktop I could see an option which allows more free form visual building.

Would be great to have Charticulator integrated in Power BI Desktop for quick access.

Even though the default charts are helpful. Sometimes we stuck in data story telling to the management. If we have this new features the data story telling would be much better than the current. Also no need to switch between web and BI platform. Thanks Microsoft

Integrating in Desktop will allow make development easier and at one place. It will also remove efforts in completing internal audits for using external visuals. I would suggest to make it available at the earliest to open endless possibilities for custom visuals.

I previously did not know about Charticulator. But as soon as I started using it I loved it. I was able to make graphics that before I only had in mind and could not represent them. It would be good if they continue and improve their performance, because when I have a lot of visuals, it takes the longest to load, but it is really useful.

Having a mechanism to allow all user to explore custom graphics would be very interesting…imagine the potential for innovation!

I tried Charticulator to create my own custom visual as I couldn’t find anything on the market that already existed and found it to be a really good tool. I made a few suggested improvements on the forum e.g. to have the facility for scrollbars for where there’s a lot of data pulling into the visual that won’t fit as standard

It looks like the tool is a side-project but it would be great if Microsoft was to up it in the priority list as a funded & supported free tool alongside / as part of the Power BI desktop offering. It would be a really powerful to put more development effort behind it so that people can shape their own visuals more easily and encourage further uptake of Power BI as a great tool in the market.
