Zebra BI for Power BI product update - July 2023

Summer is here and so are the new versions of Zebra BI visuals for Power BI. 

Here is the latest news: as mentioned in the previous update of Zebra BI Charts, we’re on a mission to make our visuals as user-friendly and interactive as possible. That’s why we added additional settings directly to the visual. After the big update in April, Zebra BI Cards visual received some enhancements for even greater clarity.

Let's dive in.

Note: This is a private version of our Power BI visuals (not the AppSource version).

So, what’s new? 🎉

User-friendly category settings

Next in the line of settings being moved from the settings pane to the Zebra BI Charts visual itself: category settings.

By simply clicking anywhere in the category area, you will be able to adjust several settings: from adjusting custom axis font (family and color), to trimming/rotating long labels, adjusting the label density, and setting the gap between the columns.

Say goodbye to endless searching in the setting pane and hello to increased interactivity! 🏆

Interactive stacked charts

Besides category settings, you can now adjust also the stacked chart settings directly on the visual.

You can highlight or invert a specific series by hovering over it and toggling the option. Or you can adjust the general settings by hovering over the series’ names and clicking anywhere. You’ll be able to rename the Others label, set Top N, or apply a different color.

Think of how much time you save when you don’t need to go to the settings pane for each change! 🪄

1-click legend settings

As a cherry on top, you can now also adjust several legend settings on the Zebra BI Charts visual.

Hover over and click on the legend area. Adjust margins, set aliases as tooltips, and switch comparisons with one click.

It really is that simple. 😎

Highlight last data point

To bring greater clarity to Zebra BI Cards visual, users can now automatically highlight the last data point in a chart.

When you click on the BAN to toggle from the total to the last data point, the latter will highlight in blue.

You can immediately focus on your current performance.🤩

Other Improvements

Zebra BI Tables 6.4

  • We have added a separate setting to show or hide the bar chart in the total row. In practice, this means that the bar charts are no longer scaled down due to the proportionally larger total row bar chart.
  • It is now possible to change the background of a single row, similar to the existing background color setting for columns.
  • Column header text trimming was improved for better legibility.
  • We have added the missing interaction settings for column renaming and design, as well as for hiding and adding columns.
  • Improved performance on Android devices.

Zebra BI Charts 6.4

  • Stacked charts now properly filter by category.
  • We’ve corrected the color and direction of the comment box variance arrows in certain cases.
  • We’ve fixed the wrong numbers in the tooltip and grand total variance calculations.
  • Disabled tooltips will no longer bother you in the mobile view.
  • Consolidated the numbers in the stacked chart and comment box.
  • Difference highlights are correctly calculated for stacked charts with negative values.

Zebra BI Cards 1.7

  • Fixed the last data point, which was incorrectly displayed in case of a negative value.
  • Fixed the reset to default for the Legends setting, as it was in some cases not working as expected.
  • Corrected the wrap card title toggle to work properly.

  • Fixed the rerendering of the visual, which was showing a landing page instead of visual content.
