Welcome to the documentation for Innofalls, a powerful custom visual for Power BI that enables you to create insightful and dynamic waterfall charts. This guide will help you navigate the features and functionalities of Innofalls, providing step-by-step instructions to make the most of your data visualizations.

Innofalls offers a range of features to enhance your data visualization experience. You can effortlessly create comprehensive waterfall charts, delve deep into your data with drill down history, and dynamically compare data using deviation charts. The visual also allows you to stack and group data by columns for better organization and add specialized deviation charts to analyze differences between measures.

Getting Started

To begin with Innofalls, you'll need to follow the installation process. The documentation provides step-by-step instructions on how to install the Innofalls visual from Microsoft AppSource and add it to your Power BI report. Once installed, you can set up your initial waterfall chart by filling in the necessary fields like Levels and Values, providing the foundation for your data visualization.

Data Fields

Innofalls provides various data fields to customize your waterfall charts effectively. The Levels field is required for dimensions and allows you to add one or more dimensions, enabling drill-down capabilities with each additional dimension breaking down the previous one. The Values field, also required, is for measures, and you can add one or more measures to stack the values of each category in your chart.

The Values From field is optional and helps visualize differences between measures by calculating deltas between the measures in "Values" and "Values From." The Stack / Columns field, also optional, is used to stack values or create multiple columns based on the selected dimension, and you can switch between columns or stack mode in the chart type menu. Finally, the Delta Fields allow for the creation of deviation charts by filling these fields with exactly two measures, enabling a detailed comparison between them.


Innofalls enhances interactivity with features like navigation controls, keyboard shortcuts, and drill down history. You can add and adjust deviation charts dynamically based on selected data elements, and the drill down history allows you to maintain and review a history of drill down steps, facilitating a easier understanding of the exploration of your data.

Chart Types

The documentation provides an overview of different chart types supported by Innofalls, including bar charts, stacked bar charts, and various waterfall schemes. You can learn how to add deviation charts to your main chart and switch between different types, offering flexibility in how you present your data.


Customize your charts with various formatting options. The documentation covers label formatting, themes, colors, and conditional formatting (coming very soon), allowing you to tailor your visuals to your specific needs. It also includes examples of specific use cases, such as profit and loss statements and IBCS styled bar charts with deviations.


The documentation provides further practical examples showing different ways to use Innofalls. These include creating waterfalls in columns, stacking products by segments, and comparing measures across quarters. These examples help you understand how to apply Innofalls to real-world scenarios.
