Workhorse visualizations, such as line charts, column charts, and bar charts, are beneficial in all visualization use cases. Microsoft Power BI does a great job of making these common charts easy to put together and thoroughly customizable. Take this hands-on course to learn how to create and customize various chart types using Power BI. Learn how to create and customize column charts and bar charts from imported data. Explore how to import time-related data using Power Query and transform it into line charts. Then, experiment with multiple formatting operations on the line chart. Upon course completion, you'll be able to build line, bar, and column charts that are engaging and meaningful and be ready to learn how to create more advanced charts, including ribbon and pie charts. This is one of a series of four paths that can be used to prepare for the PL-300: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI exam.
