Examples of Power BI visuals

This article describes some of the Power BI visuals you can download, use, and modify from GitHub. These sample visuals illustrate how to handle common situations when developing with Power BI.


A slicer narrows the portion of data shown in other visualizations in a report. Slicers are one of several ways to filter data in Power BI.
