Watch how to create a basic KPI card

Let’s get started.  

Step 1: Locate your Zebra BI Cards visual in the Power BI visualizations pane and add it to the report. 



Step 2: Drag and drop the Values measure into the Values placeholder - a single card will show up with the value shown in the middle.  

Step 3: Continue building the visual by placing any of the comparison measures (in our case the Plan measure) in the corresponding placeholder – now you will see the variance in numerical and chart form.  
Step 4: Finish building a comprehensive single card by placing one of the dimensions (in our case Month) in the Category (trend) placeholder, adding the time component to the visual.


Now that you have a single card, learn how to add multiple KPI cards in one of the three ways:
1. with a single Excel table,
2. using a slightly more advanced way with Power Query
3. or the most powerful option using DAX with SWITCH statement
