Let’s Get Started
Download the sample Dataset from below link-
Follow these steps in order to create a Multi KPI visual:-
Step-1: Click on ellipsis icon under Visualization Pane > then click on Get more visuals.(make sure you logged in Power BI desktop)
Step-2: Under AppSource Tab > Select Category “All” > Search for “Rotating Tile” > Click on Add button
Step-3: Now drag Order Date, Sales, Profit & Discount columns into visual.
By default KPI will displays the values of max(or last) order date & percentage of min(or first) order date, here max order date is 31/12/2014 & min date is 01/01/2011, you can see in below screen shot.
Now understand the KPI Percentage logic for Multi KPI visual
First order date is 01/01/2011 and Sales is 808.56 & Last order sales is 13258 =(13258 - 808.56) * 100 / 808.56 =1539.70%
Now see the logic for some other random date like 25/12/2014 Sales for 25/12/2014 is 22702 & max order date sales is 13258 =(13258 - 22702) * 100 / 22702 =-41.59%
