Data visualisations play a fundamental role in answering an important data question:”How does result A compare to result B?”. Typical examples of these questions are:
Key in answering these kind of questions is explicitly visualising the difference between the two results. This is the strength of the Dumbbell Column Chart: showing the values and the difference between them.
Key features of the Dumbbell Column Chart are:
Format the objects: Each of the data point objects (dot and line) can be formatted by selecting a color and size. Additional, the line can be switched on/off and for the dot one can switch on/off the fill color;
The Axis formatting options are in line with the options you know from the Power BI Clustered Column & Bar Charts, so no need to learn a new interface;
Selection & Highlighting: Like in standard Power BI Charts you can make use of the Selection & Highlighting functions within the Dumbbell Column Chart;
Context menu: Like in standard Power BI Charts you have access to the context menu to Include/Exclude data points;
Full tooltip support: Besides the default Tooltip behaviour (show the value of the element you hover) you can also add additional feeds to the tooltip.
Full Bookmark support: like any of the standard visuals the Dumbbell Column Chart supports Bookmarks
