Change the type of visualization in a Power BI report

Try different types of visualizations in Power BI to see which one illustrates your data best.

  1. Open your report in Editing View and create a visualization, if your report doesn't have any yet.
  2. In the Visualizations pane, select the new visualization type.


You can pin your visualization to your dashboard as a tile.

If you changed the visualization type in the report after you pinned it to your dashboard, the tile does not automatically update. So, if you pinned the visualization as a line chart and then, in the report, changed it to a bar chart, the already-pinned version of this data will remain a line chart. Pin the bar chart to see it too on the dashboard.
