Custom Visuals - Mass Import

Is there anyway to mass upload the visualizations form the 'Visuals Gallery' to the desktop client, rather than importing each visual.

 

Also, how do you get to import thiese visuals to stay on the desktop client? Everytime I seem to open up or work on a new file, I need to upload visuals again?

 

Would be good to have these installed (which can be deleted) from the master software.

 

Cheers,

Re: Custom Visuals - Mass Import

OK Great.

 

Thanks for all the ideas and reference links.

 

I didn't realise it was solely based on the file and not the application.

 

Thanks.

 

I will get to the reviews shortly.

Re: Custom Visuals - Mass Import

Maybe you can do it as a one off and save it as a template? Then for any future dasboard you can use that template?

Re: Custom Visuals - Mass Import

@Stringer

the visuals are not stored in the client but in the actual PBIX file. That is the reason why you need to import them into every new file you create.

Like @Pedzilla mentioned, create a template with all the visuals you need and use a copy of it once you want to start a new project.

Moreover, based on Tzvi’s response in this idea, the feature that import custom visuals into Power BI only once is on roadmap, keep one eye on this idea about concrete timeline.

Re: Custom Visuals - Mass Import

PowerBI was made to bother the developer. Why the developer need to import each on the the visuals? This subject has already been raised 3 years ago and nobody did nothing. PowerBi developers who provide the solution just dont have any consideration. Do they stop to use the solution they provide?
