Blog: Power BI — Cut Unnecessary Visuals — Episode 11


Welcome to Episode 11 of my Power BI Best Practices Series. In today’s episode, I will show you how and why you should cut unnecessary visuals in your dashboard to allow for better user experience. Clean reports have a better look and feel. Moreover, they make it easier for the user to understand the information and navigate through the dashboard.

Here we go!

Cut Unnecessary Visuals

An unnecessary visual is a visual that shows replicated data that you don’t need in your report twice. But still, the question is how can you determine, which of the visuals you should remove. I recommend removing the visuals, that don’t provide any additional insights. This way you can save the place for the data that really matters.

Discover the other best practices of cleaning your Power BI reports from my video above.
