Power BI Switching between Logarithmic and Linear Scales

Welcome to the second post in our miniseries: “Are You Developing Power BI Reports the Right Way?” In the two-part series we are designing a sample Power BI report visualizing the weather on Mars and using some real world techniques.

The highlights of our first post were:

    • Getting data from Mars
    • Using a JSON file as a data source
    • Performing operations in the “Get Data” phase using M
    • Implementing a Dynamic Slicer
    • Using Chiclet Slicer and Dummyimage to create a Legend Slicer
    • Making design decisions

Note: Due to the popularity of this article, we have developed a custom Power BI line chart visual that has built-in support for allowing the end users to switch the axis scales, read about it in @Talal’s post. and viewing them in Power BI Desktop.

This post will focus on:

    • Switching an Axis Between Logarithmic and Linear Scales via a Slicer
    • Adding a Date Slicer
    • Using a Dark Theme
