Sparklines are small charts you can add to a table or Matrix and are new for the start of 2022.
Above we have a Matrix showing Products by country and I would like to also see this measure on a timeline.
Select the metric Value : Add a Sparkline Button
Here we choose the measure Total Sales which has already been summarised. The Date will be used as the X Axis so we can see the trend across time.
Rename to Sparkline if you want (double click the value to highlight as editable) and now you can see the trends
And you can also format the spark line (Right at the bottom of formatting)
So Sparklines are great for adding you your tabular information, I think the line charts are pretty good.
Only supports 5 per visual so if you have more categories that wont work.
Apparently Date hierarchies don’t work at the moment but they will in the future
It would be good to assign conditional formatting to the colours. So going up could be green. Staying around the same amber and going down red.
they really do bring tables to life though and are are really great addition to power BI
