3-Way Venn Diagram (Proportional and Dynamic)

Status: New
by BrettHermann Frequent 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.

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!!!



Stack + Cluster Chart

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

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?



Developing a Control Chart

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

Gantt Chart for repeated tasks

Status: New
by TDJ Visitor on ‎01-08-2018 08:14 AM



What would be a great addition to the power BI visualisations, is a Gantt chart for repeated tasks (see added picture, from the website here, i used this tutorial to create such a chart in excel)


On the X axis a timeline, Y axis is category, and plotted is time elapsed, with Time_start and duration of the datapoints.


There is a gantt chart available in the store, but this doesn't work with repeated tasks.


A visualisation like this would be great for uptime analysis of machines, factories, ....


How to Make a Gantt Chart for Repeated Tasks 02

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!



Column Chart with Total column

Status: New

Please build a Column Chart (with regular and stacked variants, bar and column variants) with an option to show a total column that represents the total of the categories. Allow this to be positioned before or after the category columns. 


This was requested 2 years ago but seems have been ignored:

iso-contour map visualization

Status: New
by dsc Occasional Visitor on ‎07-03-2017 06:11 AM

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).

When using the Drill Down Choropleth visual with a Legend, you can set Data Colors in the normal manner.  However (unlike most visuals) these dont "stick" - every time the visual is filtered it re-assigns colors from the default palette.


You can repro this behaviour using the sample PBIX file provided with the visual.  From the page: Choropleth with Legend, go to the Visual Level Filters and filter the Party field, e.g. select B and D.  You can also try using the Format / Data Colors property to set a specific color, then change the filter and watch it reset to the default palette.


For my scenario, each value in the Legend field should show in a specific colour, regardless of filtering.  This is achieveable with other visuals e.g. TreeMap.  Please fix this aspect of an otherwise outstanding Custom Visual.

Multi Column Variable Slicer

Status: New
by xboxter Frequent Visitor on ‎11-06-2017 10:34 AM

I would like to be able to have a slicer that I can add multiple columns to as inputs. You would be able to select the column at the top of the slicer, and then have the selection options from that column. For example if I had State, Industry, and Company Size as columns for the slicer. I could select one of the three, and make selections from that rather than having to make three seperate reports with three different slicers.

I am working on a visual for a count of people by categories as a Infographic bar chart (showing a “people” icon).  It kind of works, but with my data the max count in any category is 9.  So I’m confused to see more than 9 people icons appearing in the longest “bar”. 


How can I configure my infographic to show exactly the number of icons matching the value in my measure?


Under the Shape / Format, I have currently set:


Multiple Units = On

Column Count = Auto

Units per Column = Custom / 1

Fill Percentage = same Measure


Intuitively I would expect that to produce the result I want, but it doesnt.


I've tried emailing the Infographic team, but they havent responded after 10 days.


POWER BI SERVICE: replace iframe with a responsive DIV

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.

Ability to Format Histogram X Axis

Status: New
by cbhoffm1 Frequent Visitor ‎12-10-2018 12:59 PM - edited ‎12-10-2018 01:00 PM

Is there a way to display the X-axis of the Hisogram visual as a % instead of decimals?  I am trying to diplay the distribution of % to Target, % to goal, etc.  I would rather see 0% to 40% instead of 0.00 to 0.40

Me and my team are looking for a way to enter more than one values in the thermometer of power bi. 

For example if I want to show my acutal value and different targets for each quarter, I can't do that because there is only on data field available. 

We would need a more flexible visual to add more than one target line.  The image shows a possible way it could look like. Here we have a line for each quarter. It's written which line represents which quarter. A Number can be added if wanted. 


I hope you can help me with my idea.

Career Path/Map!

Hello Community,

Hope you're well! It's incredibly inspiring how active you are at Power BI community!  I love your posts and continuously make use of your advises/tips.


In order to visually represent employees career paths we are trying to recreate a similar structure than this:


Yet I’m really struggling at it…  the closest I’ve got was using Timeline Storyteller , which is not much end-user friendly …


Would there be any similar templates or other visualizations - or even other apps - to achieve this kind of visual ?

Another idea - but no idea how to achieve it - would be to use a static background and a map/coordinate visual...


Any suggestion or guidance in this sense is more than welcome.


Thank you in advance!
