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!James commented
You can currently add KPI indicators to Power BI models using Tabular Editor, however it would be nice if you could do this natively within Power BI.
