Power BI Graphic Generator Dashboard
How to make charts look good automatically? If you know Power BI you also know that their default charts are not very.. let’s say, visual friendly. This project is all about visual improvements of an automate system to make charts presentable for users.
The Government of Vitória, the capital of Espírito Santo that is a State of Brazil, has a sector/secretary dedicated to education. They used to have a Power BI System where they were able to generate many charts about education, schools budgets and numbers of teacher and students.
As a Product Designer, I was responsible for defining a visual identity and organize the way that the charts were generated and displayed.
The Secretary of Education of the Government had many charts about the financial state of the State and they needed to display it to others secretaries, governor, mayor, press and the general population. But, and it’s a big But, the charts generated by the Power BI didn’t have a good visual identity, so that was where I get in 🙂
- To define an identity for system and charts, so it could be used automatically by the Power BI always that a new chart was generated
With 3 types of users: Administrators, Sector Managers and Press and Community and each type having to access specifics charts, I decided to create a group organization of users and set the permission to the group. So every time a new user was added, it should be enrolled into a group. New groups can be created anytime. All users can set the charts that are important to them as favorite, so every time they access they will have shortcuts right on hand
Defining the color palette was the next step. With the help of the developers we could preset a palette of colors for the web pages and another one for the charts..
With the color palettes defined and the system structure coded, the users were able to organize and generate their groups and charts as they want. Here’s the results:
