Power BI Tip #6: Fixing The Vertical Axis in Power BI Visualisations

Power BI Visualizations are amazing.

The charts and dashboard created in Power BI make it easy for end-users to slice and dice it, visualize the data in any way.

While this is great, some care is needed on the part of the Power BI Dashboard Designers, to make sure that the data is understood in the correct way, and does not lead to any confusion or miscommunication due to the lack of presentation oversight.

Take control of Power BI Charts by manually configuring the Power BI visualizations, and gain more power.

Automatic scaling can mislead people into assuming that the data is all good, and may not yield clear comparison.

In Power BI Charts & Reports, the Vertical axis scales automatically, based on the current slicers, current data and filtered context.

To get more control over the axis, watch this important video tutorial on Power BI, and learn to fix the Y-axis to your advantage.
