Power BI: Using Conditional Formatting in Power BI including Web URLs and Sparklines
DescriptionThis video tutorial is about Conditional Formatting in Power BI. The video starts by defining conditional formatting and its significance in data analysis. Conditional formatting is a feature in Power BI that allows users to format data based on specific conditions. It is used to highlight key insights in data and make it easier for the audience to understand and interpret visualizations. Users can apply different colors, fonts, and other formatting styles to their data depending on certain criteria.
After defining conditional formatting, the video moves on to demonstrate how to use it in Power BI. The video walks the viewers through the steps of creating a basic table visualization by connecting to a data source, selecting the data to visualize, and using the get data feature to connect to the data source. In the Navigator window, the sales table is selected, and the data is imported into Microsoft Power BI. Once the data is imported, a table is displayed on the right side of the Power BI desktop.
Next, the video shows how to add a matrix visualization to the dashboard. The order type and year field are added to the columns area, and the region, store, and product field are added to the rows area. Finally, the sales field is added to the values area. The video also shows how to adjust the font size to fit the matrix to the dashboard by using the format visual tab. The font size of values is adjusted to 9.5.
The video then shows how to apply conditional formatting to the sales field. Conditional formatting can be accessed from the context menu of a field. There are five types of conditional formatting: background color, font color, data bars, icons, and web URL. Background color formatting displays the background color of a field based on a given condition. The video demonstrates how to display the background color of sales based on the lowest and highest sales values. Users can apply many other useful features in background color formatting depending on their requirements.
Once the background colors based on the lowest and highest sales values are applied, the video demonstrates how to remove the conditional formatting. This can be done using the same steps used to apply conditional formatting.
In conclusion, this video tutorial is a step-by-step guide to applying conditional formatting in Power BI. It provides a detailed explanation of what conditional formatting is and its significance in data analysis. The video also provides a practical demonstration of how to create a basic table visualization, add a matrix visualization to the dashboard, adjust the font size, and apply and remove conditional formatting.
