A common requirement. Easy to do in Excel, Tableau, SSRS, many other tools.
Clearly not a duplicate.
This is a good idea, but needs to also support using Measures not just Columns. That would meet more sophisticated scenarios e.g. Colouring to follow a KPI vs Goal rule.
I would also like to see the ability to provide static start and end colours with a dynamic gradient (driven by a numeric column or measure value).
This Idea appears to be an incomplete duplicate of
Please delete it.
I couldn't have said it better myself. This same question was asked on the ArcGIS forum months ago - no response to date:
The team indicated this is something they will start working WOOT
Thanks everyone for your votes. We’ve started to do work this semester to light up this feature. Stay tuned for updates!
Thanks everyone for your feedback – We plan to release a PDF connector to import data from tables by the end of 2017 or early 2018. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer.
While we wait for a Connector solution (which would be great), I'm having some success at this task using the open-source Tabula project.
It has supporting automation/scripting projects (e.g. tabula-py for python), but in almost all cases manual extract design and post-extract data transformation is required. I guess this is due to the imprecise nature of PDF tables.
Wanted to set expectations this isn’t in our short term roadmap. 1/25/2017….This is pretty complicated due to the underlying data dependencies
There's already a technique to achieve this exact functionality via published reports in the web service, so it can't be that hard to implement.
It's clunky and long-winded, but it does seem to achieve the result.
I'd be quite happy for it to gracefully break if the data models didnt match, in the same way visuals gracefully break currently, e.g. when fields they reference are deleted.
Thanks for the renewed interest, everyone! This is certainly something we would like to get to in the future, it’s down to a case of prioritization and working through some implementation details. Keep voting to help move it up our list!
My workaround is to hide another Slicer (the "pre-Slicer") behind the required Slicer. But it's clunky and easy to forget about when messing with Interactions.
I'm struggling to see the difficulty in implementing this - isnt it just: "Make Slicers consistent with the Visual Level Filter functionality of every other visual".
For prioritization, I would've gladly traded this for the Ribbon Chart (several times over!), even if that had a Y Axis ...

Will finish the rest soon
It looks like this has missed the November release, ref https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/on-premises-data-gateway-november-update-is-now-available/
It's frustrating as there was lot's of other functionality added, which all seems edge/niche use cases. I estimate this mashup issue trips up and frustrates hundreds of users every day - they build something that seems fine in PBI Desktop, then can't use the gateway to refresh.
I'm a bit baffled by the difficulties producing a gateway with complete functionality - surely it should just be a windowless version of the Power BI Desktop Query engine, triggered remotely?
Miguel's latest update sounds more like they are re-inventing the wheel ...
Good idea, although I'm not a fan of training videos on their own. Most ppl wont sit through more than a few minutes. Videos together with a well organised set of brief pages would be ideal.
I have a few more:
+ Don't know they can select a series on a chart on a report (e.g. a bar on a bar chart) to cross-filter the other visuals on that report
+ Never notice the Filters panel on the right of the report page
