The Power View team is happy to announce the following updates to HTML5 and the Power BI app

Power View in HTML5 and the Power BI app now have these features:

  • Map drill-down works.
  • Line charts have tooltips.
  • Bar and column charts can show data labels.
  • Small multiples can contain maps.

Also, the Power BI app now includes the following updates (already in HTML5):

Maps

  • Maps can show multiple series of data, so not just dots but also pie charts of various sizes on maps.

Multiples

  • Sort order Multiples are in the order they were in when you last saved the report. You can’t change it in Power View in HTML5 or the Power BI app.
  • Highlighting Selecting values in multiples doesn’t highlight values in other visualizations, but selecting values in other visualizations highlights the same values in the multiples.
  • Drill down Doesn’t work in multiples in Power View in HTML5 or the Power BI app. Say a multiple has a drill-down field in a report.
    • If you drill down in the multiple in Excel and then save the report, in Power View in HTML5 and the Power BI app the multiple will be a gray box.
    • If you save the report without drilling down, Power View in HTML5 and the Power BI app display the multiples.
    • In Power View in HTML5 and the Power BI app you can’t drill down into multiples.

  • Can I get any update to Excel 2013's Power View add-in ?

  • It's quite sad that we are not getting these updates on power view for excel 2013 because MSFT wants to promote 365. Our investment in Office counts for nothing here. This is where the Power Query team is better, they push out their updates to the excel crowd quite often. Let's hope the Power View team borrow a leaf.

  • I agree with the sentiments shown here by other people regarding such features being made available to native Excel 2013 product as well. Our company is going to upgrade everyone to Office 2013/Sharepoint 2013 and they'll see a much better ROI if the latest updates being pushed to Office 365 are also released to native office products. Otherwise, it'll feel like Microsoft is trying to bully its customers into adopting Office 365 in favor of native suite of Office products. I hope I'm proven wrong soon!
