Make Custom Visuals More Prominent in UI/Office Store

Custom Visuals are a great idea, and awesome differentiator when compared to competing products. They bring a ton of new and experiential use cases. To increase adoption and awareness, please promote certified custom visuals in Power BI by featuring these visuals more prominently within the Power BI ecosystem (desktop, service, office store).


To do so, you might:

  • Call certified visuals out in the office store
  • Add a dedicated tab in the office store and Power BI custom visuals UI
  • Make "certified" visuals searchable (use terms such as "certified" in search box for visuals)
  • Add a "certified" badge to promote visuals that have achieved formal certification

3-Way Venn Diagram (Proportional and Dynamic)

Status: New
by BrettHermann Visitor ‎05-23-2017 10:27 AM - edited ‎05-23-2017 11:07 AM

Create a custom 3-way venn diagram that is both proportional and dynamic. It should take in three different boolean fields for each record. Each selected boolean field will represent one circle.


The area of each circle should be determined on the number of records (sum of records) when the field = 1. The overlapping areas when two or more fields are true should also be proportional** to the rest of the segments of the visualization. 


(**Doesn't necessarily need to be exact mathematically, but at least have the circle and segment areas appear proportional to the rest of the segments)


When the data source updates, the visualization should be dynamic in nature so that it's always reflecting the current data that it's build from.


Have functionality to clearly label each circle / overlap areas, in addition to allowing the user to select colours.

Simply I want to ability to create a combo box with selected columns list and define a group of options for each column.





Currently, it is possible in the Format for built in Table, but API doesn't allow to create it in custom visual.

Would be great to have an org chart visual 

Hi All,

Greeting for the Day!

I was wondering if someone can build of one very important visuals missing from Power BI gallery is Breakdown or dependencies tree,
this will help us to design a good view and give us more room for other visuals to add in our dashboard.

I wish if someone could do it would be great. Below is one such example. Thank you again.

This is an open source code so you can use the code to build the Power BI Customs visual. Thank you!!!



Hi All,

Greeting for the Day!!!

Hope you’re doing well.

Thank you for sharing custom visuals.

I was wondering if anyone could build one very important visuals missing from Power BI gallery is “Concept Network Browser”.

This will help all the users to design a single view for a multiple data set and give us more room for other visuals to add in dashboard.

I wish if this could be done so it would be great help and useful. Below is the link for a Concept network browser.


This Visual has the potential to change the Power BI customs for good. Hope you can find some time to build this visual. Thank you!!!




Infographics development team would like to get your feedback about the visual and what you'd like to see next.

Stack + Cluster Chart

Status: New

Hey, I was struggling to make a chart which was a combination of stack and cluster graphs. Although I figured out a way, but thought that it would be helpful if we can have this graph in the Power BI gallery as well.


Attached is the screenshot of the same:

Date slicer: obtain start date and end date from calculated columns or measures

Status: New
by siacc Frequent Visitor ‎04-11-2017 08:32 AM - edited ‎04-14-2017 06:06 AM

Hi all,


I would suggest an idea to improve date slicer.

It could be beautiful if you could set start date and end date of the slicer with a value given from a calculated column or measure.


For example, it could be beautiful if you could set


Start Date = NOW()

End Date = Start Date + 15 days (or Start Date + 30 days, or StartDate + 7 days... And so on Smiley Happy )


End Date could change dinamically based to the Start Date Value (NOW()).


What do you think about?



Dual Y axis in Line chart

Status: New
by vemuria Frequent Visitor on ‎04-04-2017 11:58 AM


We would like to use a Line chart with dual Y-axis (like secondary Y axis we have in combo chart). 

Any ideas if the visualization already exists which I can import and reuse?

We would like a KPI visual that shows the percentage change over the current year, combined with the trend month by month.

With the standard KPI visual, you always see the latest change% when you add a trend ...So when you show the trend by month in the current KPI Visual, the kpi value shown is the change over the current month.  We would like to see the overall YTD change% (from 1/1 until today) as KPI value and in the trend the monthly change% (so for each month the change from the first day until the last day of that month)


remark : a YTD calculation will not work because we have daily data that can not be added up (for ex daily inventory levels)


I suppose we will need the KPI value independant from the datetime-category used in the trend


Any idea if this already exists ?

Hi is it possible to create a chart where the x axis would carry a cumulative total and the y axis would show a percentage like the attached. Also each bar in the chart should be a stacked chart where 2 measures can be visualised. For example for product A the sale is $250 with a contributions margin of 36% and a net profit margin on 20%. It would be really helpful if a similar visual can be developed. Thanks alot!



Developing a Control Chart

Status: New

How can this NOT be included with PowerBI?!?  Control Charts are one of the foundational reasons to visualize data.

Would like to see a panel chart / small multiples visual (like available in Tableau) , where the X- or Y-Axis major/minor points/values can be aligned across charts

POWER BI SERVICE: replace iframe with a responsive DIV

Status: New
by siacc Frequent Visitor ‎04-14-2017 06:50 AM - edited ‎04-14-2017 06:50 AM

Good afternoon,

I suggest you an idea about report on a Power BI Service space. Currently, I have seen that the code to embed a report/dashboard has an <iframe> tag.


But, in agree with HTML5, why do not you replace <iframe> with a <div> tag  and make it responsive?


Have you considered this idea? Are you already working on it?


Thanks in advance for the answers.

Use this forum to exchange ideas for custom visuals, whether they are in the custom visuals gallery or not. Ask for new custom visuals from the community, or for new features for existing visuals.

Microsoft Azure portal for Intune provide you the information about user sign-in activities (includes usage of managed applications) and Audit Logs (information about users ,group management, your managed applications and directory activities) through reporting.


The information which is tracked, will help you to determine sign-in status for applications,with MFA (Multi factor authentication), MFA results etc


To see the activity of Sign-ins and Audit logs, login to ,click on Intune, right side you will see Users




Click on Users to see activity with Sign-ins and Audit logs ,Click on Sign-Ins




On the right side,  you will see list of all users with their sign-in status for applications.


On the top, you will see several filters like Date (Range from 1 month, 7 days, 24 hours and custom) , User (user name or UPN name), Application (application name),client and Sign-in status (success,failure or all).


I want to see the activities performed by specific users (eswar) ,to see that, simply type the user name or UPN in User filter tab and click on Apply to see the results




You also have an option to download the results into CSV format.


To see the audit logs ,while you are on users and groups- sign-ins ,click on Audit logs to see information about users ,group management.


Audit logs also filter option to list the activities performed by specific user instead of seeing long results.




As you can see from above snippet,there are several activities for user eswar koneti like change user license ,add owner to group, member to group,update user initiated by (actor) .


This also gives you option to download the results into CSV file.


I will need to see if this information can get from Power BI without going through Azure portal.

3D Graph in visuals

by rkumar Frequent Visitor Monday

Is there any visual or custom visual which lets us shown data in form of a 3D graph.

Example -

As a way to save real estate on a single page of a report, it would be great to have some kind of a card layout container that could hold multiple visuals that you could click to navigate through to the next visual in the container.

I would like to see the possibilitiy to show map visualizations with iso-contour lines calculated from georeferenced point data (e.g. lines of same atmospheric pressure).
