@Kap Currently it is not possible but if you wait for few more days there will be some option for colour coding tables / matrix in power bi desktop April update as announced at Data Insights Summit few weeks ago. I am not sure if it will allow you conditional formatting though but I have seen demo where you will have colour coding option for cells.


Other option is to use R visual in PowerBI but desktop but it is not the best solution as it is not fully supported yet plus you need to learn R for that.

I didn't see conditional formatting in that demo either - unfortunately. (Unless they surprise us)


@Kap See if this Custom Visual would work for you
