During the keynote of the 2017 Microsoft Data Insight Summit we showed a bunch of exciting new features. One that caught a lot of people’s eye, and is now available in the Office Store, is the timeline storyteller.

The timeline storyteller lets you present different aspects of your data using a palette of timeline representations, scales, and layouts, as well as controls for filtering, highlighting, and annotation, providing an amazing set of capabilities for visualizing data representing a sequences of events.


It is also a great example of how Power BI is building a community of data visualization enthusiasts to help you move beyond basic data visualization to find the right visual for your specific scenario.
