Tip 2: Make important information BIG and show it in the right spot
When we talk about this tip, people often react laconic. ‘Yes, of course we do that’. If we take a look at what they did with our hint, we aren’t surprised anymore. They just made one big pile of information. Who can pull insights from that? Make important things big and/or give it a good color. You’ll read more about what good colors are further in this blog.
Tip 3: Choose the right visual with a subject
Stating the obvious? A little. But goes wrong a lot. For creating insights in trends a simple line graph is the easiest. Bubble charts, tree maps, radar charts all look great, but aren’t always effective.
Tip 4: Add a map
A powerfull visual within Power BI is the map. It looks cool, but also gives a good sense in which part of the country a development is taking place. A retailer can see what store is above, on or under target in one view. The application of the map is endless. For instance to map stock locations or to see where a lot of inactive customers are situated. It is easy to make a route to visit many of those companies. You can use the map on a great variety of markets and applications.
