Dynamic control chart using m


I am trying to create a scorecard using the matrix, but having trouble working out how to create a dynamic sparkline chart with actual compare to target. Do you have any videos I can refer to and provide an idea on how I can create a dynamic sparkline. I would prefer to place in matrix so I do not need to deal with trying to align many different visuals to the same row. (they tend to go out of alignment over time.)

Thanks in advance.


The Microsoft Power KPI visual let you do this quite easily:

Hope this is helpful.

Hi Brian,

I tried the 2 and they are not reliable hence trying to move away from the custom visual. Any idea how to create a sparkline using a power bi matrix.

Hi @ElizabethTachjian,

There is no way you can create sparklines ‘out of the box’ inside a table. But you could use SVG images to create sparklines. See here for a showcase on this technique:

Hi Brian,

My apologies for the delayed response. Thank you for SVG image sparklines. I will give it a try.
