How to Embed R Visuals into Power BI Desktop (Dr. Leila Etaati)

Integration of R inside Power BI provides lots of possibilities from doing machine learning to more data visualization options. In This session, I will first show how to write R codes inside visualization area. Then, how to create some visuals that we do not have currently in Power BI Visualization like Slope chart, Facet chart or Column width chart with help of ggplot2 package. Moreover, there is a possibility to create your own custom visual as a pbiviz file bywriting R codes and import it into Power BI report.
