Creating Power BI Report Backgrounds the easy way!

Are you still putting boxes around your Power BI graphics?

Stop boxing your data! Boxes add unnecessary visual noise and can make it hard to see your graphics. We present a better way to add style to your data story in Power BI.

These techniques enable you add a graphical background to your Power BI reports, using the power of Microsoft PowerPoint!  Nothing to buy or install. Graphical backgrounds provide flexibility in styling while reducing effort to achieve a great looking Power BI report.

I’ll take you through two separate ways you can implement these backgrounds and point out pros and cons to each approach. I’ll also show you what to consider when you have to support both web and mobile reports.

I hope you enjoy! Please leave your comments below.
