Were you ever creating a report and did not find a feature in your Power BI Desktop that would enable you to visualize data according to your needs?

What are Power BI Custom Visuals?

Custom Power BI visuals were created by members of power BI community – programmers, users, and fans of this wonderful tool. If you are a developer then you have a possibility to contribute a visualization to the list. It is a great form of advertising your company or yourself directly. It can definitely bring new customers to you in the future. There is a gallery of custom visualizations on powerbi.com here

I found a visual I was missing in Power BI – Timeline. I use it as a time period filter in reports working with time context.

Power BI Custom Visuals Examples

Everyone has their own needs. You can definitely find visuals worth installing. Some visuals do not seem of much use on the other hand.

Timeline: Timeline is my number one now. It substitutes something I am really missing in basic power bi desktop.
