Power BI Calendar Visualization

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

  • Allows you to visualize a data point on each date on the calendar.

    • 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

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