Using the Analytics pane
You can highlight interesting trends and insights by creating dynamic reference lines with the Analytics pane. To add further analyses to your visual, select the visual and click the Analytics icon (magnifying glass).
Available Analytic lines:
- Constant line: displays the value specified, helps to track metrics and desired goals
- Min line: displays the lowest value points on the axis
- Max line: displays the highest value points on the axis
- Average line: displays the data average
- Median line: displays the middle value
- Percentile line: displays the value (or score) below which x% of the observations may be found
Formatting options for analytic lines are in line with the options you are familiar with from Power BI. Theme colors and settings are also supported.
Format your line by specifying the Color, Transparency percentage, Line width, style and position. For most lines you can specify the visual Measure to base your line upon, by selecting Primary or Secondary value from the drop-down menu.
If you want to have a data label, switch Data label On. You get additional formatting options for your data label, such as: Color, Text, Horizontal and Vertical position, Display units and Value decimal places.
