Hit Reply to tell us what you think about the new personalize visuals experience so we can continue to improve.
-Power BI Creators team
Amazing new addition and been waiting for this one to come out, so super excited that this is released.
Sadly I have to echo the other comments that it will only become useful for us once we can limit the fields available to the end user. The entire model will be too much and too confusing for the majority of people.
The second point mentioned by others, is the ability to toggle the default on/off for a visual to have personalizations available. This would make the introduction to reports with many visuals (but only one you want on) more efficient.
With primarily the first change, this will transform the way our end users utilize reports. Lots of happy customers once this is available.
Thanks for your hard work!
Can you make it so that other reports based on a dataset with personalization enabled inherit the same settings? I noticed the feature only works on uploaded pbix file directly.
I also agree with the other commenters that being able to limit the fields available to the user would be a great feature as well.
Fantastic addition! And can finally avoid multiple similar charts clogging up dashboards. Power to the users! Glad you have bookmarks and a reset button though 😉
Great comments so far on this post for your team, mine (to repeat or like is to vote!) in order, first one being critical of course:
This is really bringing things forward in a good way, keep up the good work!
Absolutely love this new feature. A couple of improvements I can think of would be:
It's a bit buggy at the moment. Once I've selected something like 'First/Last' I can't untick it to just show the field value.
I am also unable to scroll down the list of values if there are more fields on the visual than will fit on my screen.
I'd like the ability to have the 'Do not summarize' option for numerical fields on table visuals.
I share many other's view on the visual in terms of the end user's access to all the data fields... I'd like to manage what fields the consumer has access to in order to avoid confusion...
But secondly, this is a simple one, in the visual headers options of the formatting pane, have the enable personalisation feature off by default, otherwise I find myself deselecting it on EVERY visual in my report bar one....
Hi @SujataNarayana !!!
This is a good improvement which is going in the way to make final users more self-sufficient in the their analysis.
In my opinion after test it you have three options to make it even more useful:
- Allow to change the order of the fields already shown
- Control which fields and values can be added to the visual, I mean create a container where the developers define and delimitate it to avoid that final users get lost in the huge amounts of fields, key figures, etc... that are created as a intermediate step.
- Allow, and this is about the table and matrix, and not excluisvely for "peronalize visuals" allow to copy and paste selection as you see in the visual, with grand total and subtotals and the columns (for matrix) in excel format.
Thaks so much for your help!!!
At this moment, we only can use an existing visual to modify, and get the result.
It would be extremely helpful if end user can add a "personal page" start with blank, and play around with the reports, add personalized visuals by their own.
Many users simply don't want to touch to the existing dashboard, but setup a separate page where they can make a table to download the data, or see things in their own way.
The ability for end-users to personalize visuals within published reports is one of the most exciting new options to have been added to Power BI in recent memory. Combined with the ability for users to bookmark these personalized versions of the visuals, I can imagine that this will allow for a very powerful self-service reporting experience.
However, it is currently unusable for me, because it is missing the following critical features (in descending order of priority):
I think this is awesome! An option to have it default to either on/off would be good to have. I'm having to go through all visuals, with header turned on, to toggle off the 'Personalize visual'.
Enabling the custom visuals is a huge step forward to enabling self-serice reporting in Power BI with centralized model & report management. From a developer perspective it would be great if we'd have the possibility to indicate which measures, columns and tables should be available to the end-users in the Power BI service. Currently they can "see" the entire data model which can be confusing.
End-users might end up selecting measures which, due to DAX programming, show a different result than expected. Enaling the option for the developer to determine what the end-users can "play with" would be a big improvement.
Hi @SujataNarayana ,
This is an amazing feature! It works smoothly.. I love the simplicity of it and this would be a great funcionality for end users. Hopefully this feature is hardened and available as a stable release in future.
All the best and keep inovating 🙂
- The personalise view is not displayed when i open the report from Teams. Can you enable that too?
- The personalise view is not displayed when share to web (public) this would be awesome!
I really liked this feature. A couple of inputs for the Product team :
