Conditional formatting (color scale) based on a measure



I need help with formatting my table.

Is it possible to use the color scale, but instead of entering a fixed number for the middle value, I want to use a number that would be uploaded from the excel file?
So, if someone changes the value in the excel, the formatting automatically changes.
I know that it is possible to achive with rules instead of colour scale, but I want to have more than just three colors in my table.

Hi, @AnetaK 


Your demand is a good idea, while it is not supported to implement in Power BI currently.

you can submit a new idea to improve the Power BI.

It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.



Hope this helps.
