BlogsRead about the exclusive features of xViz custom visuals for Power BI through our blogs.
Newly Released Charts xViz suite has been highlighted in the Power BI desktop summary blog series for the 3rd month in a row.
The blog talks about exclusive features of 2 custom visuals- Advanced Gauge and Hierarchical Filter that are added to the xViz Suite.
The Hierarchical Filter is a selector component like a slicer, just that it can display multiple category values in an expandable tree view used to displayed hierarchical nodes for filtering. Each node can be expanded and collapsed for optimal navigation through the hierarchy and single/ multiple selections can be made to select the desired nodes.
Advanced Gauges are a great way to represent a metric against a scale with optional qualitative representations illustrated by colors. They are also sometimes referred to as a speedometer or tachometer chart and are most commonly used to measure values like volume, temperature, speed, etc.
Thanks to the Microsoft Power BI team for the valuable endorsement to our product xViz for Power BI, by getting featured at length by Microsoft in their October 2019 Power BI Desktop Summary Blog.
The Advanced gauge helps us visualize a single value within a given scale as pointed by the needle on the colored data range or chart axis. This chart type is often used in executive dashboards to show key business indicators.
Linear Gauge, an xViz Custom Visual can be best used to visualize a KPI. The Linear Gauge gives one the ability to compare the actual and target values. The color bar in Linear gauge shows you how much progress an organization has made toward key targets such as month on month or year over year.
The xViz Tag Cloud gives you a more visually interesting way to look at the tags or words that come along with your data. It can be product descriptions, tags from twitter, names of customers or even employees.
The xViz Hierarchical Variance table provides the ability to the user to view and analyze hierarchical data with much more detailing added to it. The extensive list of features lets you to consume business trends, hierarchies and different forms of data all at once and view it in a much appealing visual form.
Horizon chart gives you an easier way to visualize several stacked line or area charts sliced horizontally by categories. The baseline for each slice would still be zero and it helps you analyse the outliers in the time-series easily.
