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 is published to the Power BI AppSource Marketplace and 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
