Microsoft today announced the ability to use custom visuals to every single user of the Power BI service and Power BI Desktop. They are introducing the following items today:
- Custom visuals in the Power BI service and Desktop: The ability to upload and incorporate a custom visual, whether a broadly useful visual from our community gallery or a completely bespoke visual tailored for the needs of a single user, into the report and then share it with others. This is available in the Power BI service today, and in the Desktop next week.
- The Power BI visuals gallery: A community site (visuals.powerbi.com) that allows creators to upload new Power BI visuals and for users to browse, select and download those visuals.
- Power BI developer tools: With our developer tools every web developer can code, test and package new visuals directly in the Power BI service to be loaded to the gallery.
