Example of Integrating Visio with Power BI

This data story illustrates how an existing Visio diagram can be inserted into a Power BI report and used as a heat map. The details on how this was done are posted here.


Visio can be used to add items such as floor plans, organizational charts and process maps to your report. Since the diagram becomes clickable, it can act as a visual slicer, where clicking a specific person in an org chart filters the entire report for that person.


Also, the integration is easy to do. If you have access to a Visio diagram, even if you don't have edit rights to it, you can incorporate it into your report.
