Every Power BI report requires dynamic and properly formatted comments. The HTML Text Styler is the visual that takes care of this
Advantages of the HTML Text Styler:
- If a data source with comments exists, it can be loaded and displayed in the visual.
- There's no need to load comments because all elements can be created directly in Power BI using DAX and HTML.
- KPI cards can be designed exactly the way you want them.
- Tables can be designed exactly the way you want them. It's even possible to add images and other elements into tables.
- Videos and animated GIFs can be embedded.
- DAX measures can be used to create dynamic text which changes depending on the user's selections.
- HTML is used to dynamically format the text and highlight the parts which the user should focus on.
- The visual can be used directly in the report or as a tooltip which shows additional insights when the user hovers over a visual.
- Text and images can be combined in one visual which reduces the number of visuals.
- The combination of DAX and HTML leads to endless possibilities.
- It's fun to use 🤩
Using the HTML Text styler means that EVERY person looking at the report:
- immediately understands the message of the report.
- can apply filters and see comments related to the selections made in the report.
- gets much more insights by reading about what has happened and looking at the values at the same time.

Some basic knowledge of HTML helps to use the visual but there's absolutely no need to be an HTML expert. There are many online tools that convert formatted rich text to HTML. You could also use Microsoft PowerApps to enter text and save it in HTML in a SharePoint list or the database of your choice.
We can show you all this in a free online demo.
