Power BI Calendar Visualization

Devin Knight continues his Power BI visualization series and looks at a custom calendar visual:

    • The darker the color, the higher the value or density of values.
  • If you have multiple rows on the same date they are aggregated together

  • The Calendar Visualization can be used for cross filtering. Meaning you can select a square in the calendar and it will filter other visuals down to the date you picked.

This is an interesting visual.  It’s dense, but not difficult to understand.
