The new card visual in Power BI Desktop
Part two of a three-part series of blogs
Microsoft have introduced an impressive new card visual in the June 2023 Power BI Desktop update, which blows the old (rather feeble) card visual out of the water!
A card can now contain as many data fields as you like:
This card contains 4 statistics.
You can arrange these cards in grid, vertical or horizontal layout:
The three layouts compared.
Read on for how to do all of this!
To add multiple statistics to a card, just drag the relevant fields onto it:
Here I've added the Sales field twice, and it's being summed in both cases.
You can now click on the drop arrow next to each field and choose how you want to aggregate it:
For example, you could click on this option to average sales instead of summing them.
The easiest thing to do is then to rename the fields to what you want their cards to display:
Choose this option to rename each field just for this visual.
Here's how you can change how your statistics are laid out within a card:
You can choose Horizontal, Vertical or Grid layout.
If you choose Grid layout you can say how many rows and columns you want in your grid:
Here I've gone for a grid with 2 rows, 2 columns and 5 pixel spacing.
If you create a grid with insufficient cells to hold all of the card's statistics (and I know you're wondering this!) Power BI displays a scroll bar allowing you to see the hidden values.
