2022 Week 14 | Power BI: Create an achromatic report


April is colour month for Power BI Workout Wednesday 2022.

First up we are going to try our hand at creating reports WITHOUT hue.

Using a file from a previous challenge, can you create an achromatic report that uses contrast and lightness effectively?


There will be some creative freedom involved in this challenge, no solution will be provided. Hop onboard and show us your unique designs!!


  • Obtain the pbix from a previous challenge (2021 Wk 44)
  • Using whichever measures are available in the report, or by creating your own, build some visualisations in black and white or greyscale
  • Be mindful of contrast and lightness


This challenge uses the PBIX report provided on data.world that uses the Super Store datset that have used in previous exercises. You will need to log in to data.world to retrieve the data, but accounts are free. 


After you finish your workout, share on Twitter using the hashtags #WOW2022 and #PowerBI, and tag @JSBaucke@MMarie, @shan_gsd, @KerryKolosko, and @NerdyWithData. Also make sure to fill out the Submission Tracker so that we can count you as a participant this week in order to track our participation throughout the year.

        Hello there, there is no solution file for this week as the idea is to create your own visualisations using black, white and grey scale
