Visual Header - Format Menu Options / Icons

Does anyone know what these 3 options in the Visual Header Format Menu actually do?

1) Visual warning icon

2) Visual error icon

3) See data layout icon

If anyone knows please post pictures to show what actually changes when on versus when off?


Thanks! Smiley Happy

After researching and testing, I haven't found any changes on those icons.

Here are some articles which discuss about visual header, hope they can provide some ideas for you.

I was hoping someone from the PBI team can shed some light on this.

My image below shows what happens for each option when icon is on and when off (except for the 3 in yellow) 

I've included 2 examples of what the Information Icon my say... (The drill down dropdown icon is from Matrix)

Thank you for the links but unfortunetely they don't address my question.

I had already submitted an Issue (unrelated to this) about the Visual Header which was accepted.

Thanks! Smiley Happy
