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.

Power BI Tip#4: Enter Data Into Power BI Quickly [Video]

Even though Power BI makes it extremely easy to load data from Excel and hundreds of other sources, clean it, and process it in any way, there are times when I wanted to do some testing, and bring in some test data.

I didn’t want to create Excel files and store them. I only wanted a simple way to bring in the data into Power BI.

Finally, I saw that Microsoft Power BI has actually thought about such a need, and there is a prominent button called Enter Data right on the Home screen.

I tested it out, and to my amazement, it worked perfectly. So I have been using it heavily in my work as a Power BI consultant, and architect of Power BI dashboards for our clients. Most importantly, this is one feature that our participants really loved in our Power BI classroom training.

So I recorded a short tutorial on how to use this nifty Enter Data feature of Power BI for your viewing pleasure, and for you to begin using it in your work.

Hope you found this tip useful.
