xViz Ideas

How can we improve xViz?


Dear Team,

Great piece of work congratulation! Love the Parallel Coordinates visual. Would be nice howerver to have an option to define the value range shown on the chart for each value. For instance below to have all values starting from 60% to 101%. It would give better overview on deviations as result with 100% an all values would give a straight line and not curved ones like below:

Possibility for an option to export visuals as PDF from Power BI Desktop?

We might add it in future, based on PowerBI SDK support

The primary motive of the Power BI Desktop client is for creating visualization/business analytical applications and Power BI service or the web version is for the end users to view all these reports on a single platform. Hence the exporting options are limited to the web version. Like @nsdevaraj said, if Microsoft supports it in the future SDKs, we will implement it too.



It would be great if the xViz Hierarchy Tree could display in vertical as well as horizontal.

First of all, great visual option! Love the design and flexiblity. One thing that would be great to able to adjust is the data labels. Would be great to be able to show only actual values instead of only the highest value.

What do you mean by adjusting the data labels? I found a couple of options where we can change the properties of data labels.

And also could you explain which visual you are talking about with the actual values??

Hi, Im talking about the variance chart. Only option I can adjust is the color, size, overlap and background. I would love to use this visual to show my actual vs target. However at this moment the visual automatically shows the highest value of the two. Where I would like to disable the data label for my comparison and just show the actual data label!

Got that @JeroenFilius. Instead of showing the maximum value, we do not have an option to display actual value. But we can definitely expect to have it in the the next update release of the visual I guess.

The same goes for the label options in the Multi Axis chart. I have been playing around with both charts and the labeling options are now really limiting. I think the labeling options in the standard graphs of Power BI are quite good. there you have the option to only show certain labels, color them differently and give them another number format.


I love the Horizon chart and how easy it is to use, thank you.

It would be great if I could flip the colours. This viz deals with temperature so the natural colouring is blue for cold (negative) and red for hot (positive) but all the options I could see start with red, not end with red and I couldn’t find a way to flip them. I ended up using purples to orange/brown as below but I wasn’t really happy with it. Even the example on the website is not intuitive with cold temperatures in red and hot temperatures in blue. 2 other minor requests: 1) less white space on the right of the legend and 2) allow axis labels other than the data plotted eg. this dataset shows the years 1880 – 2020 and I would like to show every year of data but not every year on the x-axis as there are too many. I can create a separate series to group them into decades or 20 year bands but I can’t find a way to display a different series for x-axis data and labels without it aggregating the data and diluting the message I want to show in the plot.

These changes could help to really polish an already amazing visual.
