How to handle No Results

I would like to know if there is a elegant way to handle a displaying a table that has no values to be shown when it's working as intended.  I want to communicate to the user of the report that the table is empty on purpose instead of having them wonder if the report is failing.  Somewhat similar to a "This page was intentionally left blank" message.


For example I have a table that shows details of events scheduled for future dates.  Some of the users of the report won't have any events scheduled so the resulting table is blank.  I would like to instead display a message "There are no upcoming events scheduled"

Hi @JSnow

With a blank dataset below



Create a measure

Measure = IF(ISEMPTY(Table1),"This page was intentionally left blank")

Then add this measure to a card visual





Best Regards


Thank you for the response that is helpful to create something to place when there is no data to display.


I guess what I am more so looking for is how to hide the empty visual.  As with this solution if I overlay the card visual on top there is still headers shown with no data below.  Is there a setting to control a transparancy property using the measure or changing the visability of a visual some other way?
