Power BI | Charts exercise | Create a tree map as a slicer, and a column chart of films
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend one of more of the courses listed below!
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Open the Power BI report in the above folder. It contains three tables, giving films, their directors and their genres.
Create a tree map visual based on the table of genres:
The trick to getting the rectangles the same size is shown below.
The field well for the tree map should look like this:
By adding the Genre field to the Group and Values sections you ensure that each tree map rectangle is the same size.
Add a column chart showing the length of each film, and get this to be filtered when you click on a genre. Here's what you should see, for example, when you click on the Sports genre in the tree map visual:
To keep you busy, you'll need to set conditional formatting and axis titles, and make sure that the sorting is correct.
Save this report as Treemendous, then close it down.
