Storytelling with Power BI: Consistency

Mark Lelijveld continues a series on storytelling with Power BI:

In the below report you can easily click on a country on the left side to move to another page. When it comes to interactivity it is all done right! On the right top you can also filter on order date. Let’s say we apply a filter to only see the sales up to the end of 2013. This results in a sales amount of nearly $ 319K.

Much of the difference between adequacy and excellence with visualization is in this kind of polish.
