Adding GIFs to Power BI Reports

Riqo Chaar adds a bit of motion to cards:

This article will describe the process behind adding GIFs to card visuals in Power BI. The GIFs we will create in this article will be as follows: animated arrows, looping only once, displaying the direction of movement relating to a particular value between the current period and the previous period. These GIFs work extremely well as a visual aid, highlighting key information quickly to users, without any overstimulating effect due to a single loop being used.

This article was inspired by a video from the YouTube channel, How to Power BI.

Click through for the article. I’m pretty well on the fence about this: adding GIFs is not something I would think to do, primarily because of the distraction factor. Even so, it’s still good to know that it’s possible.
