Zoom Slider for More Focused Visual in Power BI

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Zoom Slider is a new feature from Power BI that gives users an easy way to examine a smaller range of data in a chart without having to use a filter.



For example, when the range of time in your chart is too long, it is quite difficult to read and understand the data.

In the above representation, when the range of time of the chart is too long, it is quite difficult to read and understand the data.

Now that we have adjusted the time frame by selecting January 2020 to July 2020, there is an accurate emphasis on this period giving a clearer visual.



The zoom slider can be turned on by clicking the visual first. Secondly, you must open the Format subpanel on the Visualization panel.

After being turned on, a slider will appear on the Visual. You will now have an option to turn the zoom slider of both axes on, or just the single axis.


Zoom Slider options can also be applied to the bar chart, but only for the Y-axis slider (Values).
