Hello,

I cant find a well explained solution to how I can add green-up\red-down arrows to my KPI Indicator.

What you might want to do is to have a table with URL's of up arrow and down arrow. You could then set this as an Image URL in the data model and display them in a table but filter the table such that it shows the appropriate one at the appropriate time. Something along those lines.

You need to put something in your "Target goals" area of the visualization and then you will get red and green indicator. You will get an exclamation point or a checkmark.

My target is a condition:

If there's an increase the prcentage will be possitive e.g+4.3% then Green arrow else negative Red arrow.

is that possible to initiate this condition in the "Target goals" area of the visualization?.

@Noak Use the below measure and make it as card.

If you are comparing with previous values if it is by monthly then

`Percentage% = [Measure for percentage]`

`KPIArrows = IF(ISBLANK([Percentage%]),"No Data Available ",[Percentage%]])&" "&IF([Percentage%]]=[PrevMonPercentage],"",IF([Percentage%]] > [PrevMonPercentage],UNICHAR(8679),UNICHAR(8681))`

Hi @Noak,

Up to now, green-up\red-down arrows are not available in Power BI desktop, there is a request here, you can vote it. Thanks for understanding.

Hi @MohanV

Thank you for your advice, unfortunately UNICHAR(8681) and UNICHAR(8679) is not recognize.

I would like to clarify:

From the start I used the card visual with dynamic period mesaure (via attached image)

code:

KPI Indicator = if(HASONEVALUE('Filters'[Period]),
SWITCH(FIRSTNONBLANK('Filters'[Period],'Filters'[Period]),
"Last 24h",[today]/[Yastedrday]-1,
"Last 7d",[this week]/[last week]-1,
"Last Month",[this month]/[last month]-1,
"Last Year",[this year]/[last year]-1),
BLANK()
)

All I want is a little green\red arrow to add to this visuale based on the condition: IF result>0 ,green,red.

very easy just dunno what feature is avalible in power bi to initiate it, please help me?
