Conditional Formatting Returns to the Formatting Pane of Power BI Desktop

16 September 2022

Last month, Microsoft released an update to conditional formatting for data labels which removed the conditional formatting option from the Formatting pane.  Whilst being fixed up, this new update allowed data labels to apply to each individual data point rather than all of them together.  At the time, this improvement was limited to visuals without a field in the Legend field well.  Now, this update has brought that same behaviour to those cases as well.

Since this interaction has now been improved, Microsoft has now returned the conditional formatting button to the Formatting pane (yay!) for visuals with legend fields.  Keep in mind that the conditional formatting rules for data labels that you’ve already set on current reports will still not be affected until you reapply the rule and publish the report again.

But welcome back conditional formatting!!
