Description: The bullet chart provides a rich display of data in a small space. Inspired by Stephen Few, here is a Power BI implementation. Vertical orientation coming soon.

Update: Added a comparison measure and an additional label for description. Legend coming soon.

Awesome! This has been my most requested feature for the last 5 years! I have been using an excellent add-in for Excel (http://sparklines-excel.blogspot.com.au/) but as this uses VBA it doesn't work with Excel Services so it's great that bullet charts have been added. Hopefully some of the other visualisations that are in this add in also get converted, e.g. Gantt charts.

Great! Could you add a 'people's choice tweet' link to the post, to make it easy to show our love on Twitter?

Dev newbie question:


i would like to analyse the code and run it too, should i download the visual studio project or fork it via git?

How do i fork it, will it be integrated with the other 20 visuals when i run/debug it?


 (My dev machine is running, the question is that im not used to git and this web dev stuff... )

Hi Ricardo,

yes, the repo contains also the 20 visuals built in Power BI.


If you plan to make changes to our code you should fork it from Github, otherwise download it Smiley Happy
