Breakdown Trees

The Breakdown tree makes it possible to visually display the full drill-down path of a measure. By keeping all levels in the drill-down path visible you will get a good overview of how your numbers break down, from the top level to the details at the bottom.

Awesome! Thank you! @fredrikheden fyi, @leonardmurphy I'll want to chat about this at a user group meetup session


Wonder if this is part of Microsoft's plan to drag Excel-wielding accountants into the world of app dev :-)

Is this visual not working in PBI desktop? I tried in latest PBI version 2.33.4337.281 64-bit (March, 2016) but can't show next level.

Really like the visualisation of this Breakdown Tree.  Given the number of comments it would appropiate to make a request for it to be included within the Power BI Desktop visuals. I shall raise a request for it in the Power BI Blog and encourage fans to vote for it.

Hi Fredrik, I've just downloaded the PBIVIZ from but am getting an error saying it is corrupt when trying to open it.  Can you please provide an updated, working copy?  Has there been any progress on getting this added to the Visuals Gallery?

Thanks Tony
