The company states,
“We are very excited to announce, that as of today, custom visuals are available to discover and download within the Office store.”
Instead of going to Power BI’s existing gallery for custom data visualizations, which also includes those from the third party developers, the company has now started directing users to the new area in the Office Store.
It was in 2015 when Microsoft first launched its Power BI custom visuals gallery, generally available as a freemium service.
Microsoft Power BI program manager Tzvi Keisar, in the blog post states,
“The community is the force that drives the success of custom visuals. Developers have contributed more and more custom visuals to the visuals gallery, which now has more than 80 visuals! Report creators embraced custom visuals and made some awesome reports. Also, your focus and passion has helped to improve the platform and make custom visuals what they are today. It was heartwarming to see how much you care and enjoy custom visuals!”
In the Office Store, you will be able to sort visuals by category; you will also be able to watch videos of visuals before downloading and you will also be able to view the rating as well as the reviews. Developers will be able to collect the feedback of the users and check the metrics.
VentureBeat states that a Microsoft spokesperson has informed via email that the gallery will retire on April 30, however, the custom visuals will keep on working even after the gallery is removed.
