Dual Y axis in Line chart

Status: Delivered
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?

Power KPI supports dual Y-axis now.



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.

Gantt Chart needs Milestones

Status: Accepted
by nogi Regular Visitor on ‎10-02-2017 08:39 PM

The Gantt chart needs to be enhanced in order to be able to display miletones as well. Currently, milestone name appears on the axis but not on the timeline due to the duration being = 0. Easy solution would be to display 0 duration tasks with a diamond or something along those lines.

Provide access to the viewport height and width through when developing a custom visual. When developing custom visuals that act as controls like date range pickers or combo boxes the visual cannot extend beyond the visual host.

The only way to make the visual useful is to provide enough height and width for the visual when building your report, this takes up tons od sapce and make the report development and use very clunky

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!!!



Enable drill through on Custom Visuals

Like on standard visuals it would be much apprceciated to be able to drill through to an other page from a Custom Visual.


Thanks in advance,



Status: Delivered

As of API 2.2 context menu and drill through features are supported.

With drill through report authors can create a page in their report that focuses on a specific entry. By right-clicking on a data point in other report pages they can drill through to the focuses page to get details that are filtered to that specific context.

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

Hierarchy Chart by Akvelon implements requested functionality.

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

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?



Developing a Control Chart

Status: New
by ejmartin23 Visitor ‎03-21-2017 01:01 PM - edited ‎03-21-2017 01:03 PM



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

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!



A Timeline slicer that is not massive

Status: Accepted
by robrien6 Regular Visitor on ‎02-27-2018 02:15 AM



This is a simple idea that reflects most of the review feedback for the otherwise excellent timeline slicer.


*Please can we have a version of this visual that is not massive?*


Its a great slicer - but its like putting duplo with Lego - it looks ridiculous in the context of a report with almost any other tiles on it.


Please can we have one that scales well to a "normal" size and ideally works with sync slicers/seledctmoin pane bookmarks.


Many Thanks,


Status: Accepted

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

Support for AD authentication in custom visuals

Status: Accepted
by karaoan ‎09-25-2018 11:34 PM - edited ‎09-25-2018 11:35 PM

We have already raised this with the respective team @ MS for months and have been told this is "on the horizon". So, this post only to show we are not the only ones needing this: we urgently require support for AD authentication in custom visuals. Microsoft is already including it in their own visuals (PowerApps visual) so it shouldn't be too hard to also offer it with 3rd party custom visuals.

Status: Accepted

Thanks for reaching out.
Yes, 3rd party authntication is in our backlog, we are in the planning stages.

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, ....

Enable slicer sync on the Timeline custom visual

The Timeline custom slicer is very useful and allows for far easier period selection than the stock timeline slicer. Yet it does not work with slicer sync. If this support can be added it would be very helpful.
