How to Use Power BI Gradient Colors and Legend

Enhance Power BI Gradient Colors and Legend in Your Reporting

The July Power BI update included a gradient legend for visualizations using gradient colors.  Conditionally format your visuals to scale the color from light to dark to highlight important values with Power BI gradient colors.  In addition, you can add a third color to highlight the middle ranges.  Power BI gradient colors can be added using rules.  This enables you to create stoplight coloring on values to further enhance your reports.
