Violin Plot on Power BI Page

How is the violin plot created that is shown on all Power BI marketing materials?  I have used the violin plot that can be downloaded from the store, but does not have the same impact as this visual.

Hi , @Anonymous 

I  downloaded  the violin plot  from the  store  and  it have the similar impact as this visual .

Maybe you need to do some changes  in “ Format”  to get the impact you want.

Here is a sample  I made:

Hi @Anonymous

I'm the author of the visual and in addition to the links provided by @v-easonf-msft, I also wrote this article on the correct use of the Sampling field to help clarify how the data needs to be structured for the Violin Plot, as it works differently to a number of the core visuals. Hopefully you'll find it useful.

I notice this post is a couple of weeks old, so I hope you have managed to get the visual to do what you want by now, but feel free to reach out to me if you have any specific questions - I'll be happy to help 🙂

All the best,

Daniel

Hi @dm-p 

I have a log table which consists of 4 columns (UserID, eventID, rating, timestamp). It has about 12000 rows. I created an index field to ensure each entry has an unique identifier and then used the index field for sampling and numeric rating field for measure. However, nothing returned from my violint plot canvas. I then replaced this index field with UserID or eventID, either one could generate a violin plot. Could you please help me with this?

best,

Further details, for the measure field, I have created a calculated measure (average rating) instead of using the actual rating from the log file, which is probably the reason why it didn't plot. The internation is to create a calander table link to the log file and then add weekday (Mon-Sun) into the category field so that I can see the distribution of average rating under different day of the week,
