Hi everyone! To give you an update here, we’ve begun work on this feature!
The first step will be bringing icon sets as a conditional formatting option. You’ll be able to set rules and icons, very similar to what you can do in Excel today. We want to get this out to you quickly, so it’ll be available in table and matrix visuals only to begin with.
Based on the comments on this thread, we’re focusing on the indicators first and looking for feedback on how soon after we need to follow with model-based KPIs. Please keep letting us know in the comments if you need model support for this too!
Thanks for your patience and for engaging and voting!
I solved all my KPI problems when a measure could be set as a URL image and now with the latest updates in conditional formatting too. But it still would be interesting to have a built in feature.
One easy way to have icons, arrows and any other image as a way to show meaning to a value is to give measures the ability to be set as a URL Image. I already have a model set up to show, grey, red, yellow, green and blue Icons according to % value.
The only thing missing is measures being URL image. It would work like a charm.
Since Power BI is about visuals, I don't understand why this is not implemented yet.
I totally agree. I was here to create the idea myself.
Pass to end user standard filed names is not a good idea.
Also, it would be useful to create "colapsable" sessions on the filter pane...:
:: - Date Filters
:: - Location Filters
:: - Product related filters
So that the user is not overwhelmed by many filters at once... he could choose a category and expand/colapse.
I will se if this one exists and will create it otherwise.
Hi everyone. There are some really interesting ideas in this thread, thanks for your vocal support about it! We’ll consider it for the future along with other suggestions and plans. Thanks!
Recently there was a translation change on the expression Drill Down in Power BI Brazilian Portuguese.
What was once "Drill down", now is "Busca Detalhada", what means "Detailed Search"
What was once "Drill up", remains "Drill up", which shows an incomplete translation.
I would advise to use the same translations in Excel:
Drill Down to "Expandir" (To Expand)
Drill Up to "Recolher" (To Retract)
Expand All to "Expandir todo o campo" (To expand all the field)
Retract All to "Recolher todo o campo" (To retract all the field)
Since those translations are already validated (see Excel image in the post below) and well known and understood in Brazilian Community, I would advise to use the same translation on Power BI.
Thanks in advance and have a good day!
This feature would be great. It would give freedom to create kpi and other visual information.
