Interactive R custom visuals support is here!

R is a strong and popular language, enabling developers to create great analytics on data, as well as visualization. Developers can already create R custom visuals that plugs into Power BI reports, to enable report authors to use those custom visuals without known R. This is a powerful capability to extend the visualizations of Power BI. We are proud to announce that R custom visuals can now also be interactive, by generating HTML as the visual (instead of the static image that was supported until now), R custom visuals are capable of supporting tooltips and selections.

Visual Awesomeness Unlocked: Dual KPI custom visual

We have a very special new member to the custom visuals gallery: the Dual KPI. Dual KPI efficiently visualizes two measures over time. It shows their trend based on a joint timeline, while absolute values may use different scales. The reason this visualization is special is because we use it at Microsoft in executive dashboards to monitor usage and user satisfaction for each product, or when an executive wants to keep an eye on two KPIs at the same time (for example Profit and Market share or Sales and Profit).

New APIs available for custom visuals developers

It has been a few months since we released the new developer tools and custom visuals APIs, and we are working to add more APIs to help you develop the best custom visuals possible. On that note, we are excited to announce that version 1.4 was just released, introducing localization support, so now custom visuals are aware of the locale, and can localize the content of the visual accordingly.

Visual Awesomeness Unlocked: Pyramid 3D Chart by Collabion

Like the name suggests, a pyramid chart has a triangular structure. Lines run across it, dividing it into sections with thicknesses proportional to their values. A pyramid chart represents data in the form of percentages, with the whole chart representing 100%. A pyramid 3D chart built with Collabion helps you visualize the total data, as well as the hierarchical structure of it, in the form of a pyramid-like structure. A filtered pyramid chart, on the other hand, is represented in the form of a graduated glass pyramid filled by liquid, where the graduations indicate the values of different sections after data filtration.
