In this module, you will learn how to use the Horizontal Funnel Power BI Custom Visual.  The Horizontal Funnel functions somewhat similar to the traditional funnel, but it allows you to display a secondary measure and has a few more customizations than you would normally get. You’ll find that the Horizontal Funnel is great for displaying a flow of data.

  • Under the Funnel Title, you can modify the appearance of the visuals title. One of the more interesting features here is the Tooltip Text property, which makes it possible to give a description that is visible by hovering over the question mark next to the title.
