Column Chart with Dynamically Colorable Columns and with Average and Limit Lines

I am searching for a column chart for Power BI for highlighting outliers in the data.  I'm needing for it to enable the following:

 

  1. Dynamic coloring of the columns, e.g. depending on whether the data point is within specified limits,
  2. Displaying of upper, lower, or both upper and lower limit lines, and
  3. Displaying of an average line--or better yet--a trend line.

We found one that allows dynamic coloring of the columns, but it's missing items 2 and 3.  Does anyone know if such a component exists?  Thank you.

Hi @NoMoreOQ99er,

 

#1. Power bi not support change columns color, maybe you can try to create table visual or matrix visual with 'conditional formatting' feature to setting color in visuals.

#2. Please add calculated column or measure to use dax formula with UPPER, LOWER functions to convert characters case.

 

#3. These analytic lines are in analysis pane, please refer to below document to know how to use them.

Thanks.  We did try tabular format with conditional coloring, but the manager was hoping for a columnar display with conditional coloring, as it really shows where the bad data is and the limit lines show by how much.  Thanks.
