Power BI custom visuals now available in the Office store.

What is changing?

Power BI is now a product in the Office store, listing all Power BI custom visuals. Searching and filtering by categories are available for easy navigation.

Many visuals are already listed in the store, and Microsoft working to onboard the rest of the visuals within a few weeks. The Office store will be the place to discover custom visuals and download them, as well as the place for developers to submit and manage their custom visuals in the store.

The visuals gallery will still be available until company finish moving all of the visuals to the Office store, however new submissions will only go to the Office store. All custom visuals that were ever downloaded from the gallery will continue to work as usual even after the gallery will be deprecated.

Better for users

  • An easy navigation experience using categories and search. We created a set of categories just for custom visuals.

  • A details page for each visual with high quality screenshots and videos to introduce you to the visual.

  • Reviews and ratings are available as a feedback channel to the developer and also a way for you to help others gauge quality of a visual.

Better for developers

You will be able to use the Office developer center which will bring the following.

  • Submit your custom visuals in an easy to use web portal.
  • Manage your custom visual submissions.
  • Track how many people visited your custom visual page in the store and downloaded it.
  • Get direct feedback from users through the review system to help you improve the visual.
