ADWISE RoadMap – ChangeLog

Version 3.1

RELEASED! Due to specific Microsoft publishing process, it may not reach all of you at the same time. General availability end of February 2024.
This release will be minor one, but we added some useful features and couple things for making your roadmaps nicer 🙂

IMPORTANT! License key input now in the formatting menu as a first option. No more cumbersome green „License key“ button in the upper left corner of the visual.
No need to enter the license key anew, unless you are renewing your license.

New features

  • New license key input method – green „License key“ button exchanged for item in formatting menu
  • Line Breaks – content can be spread on multiple rows (e.g. Additional column content). It can be done by simple line breaks in source excel or UNICHAR(10) in calculated columns. See Additional column content in „Case No. 1 Alt 2“ and its dataset in demo files.
  • „Empty“ visual message – configurable (message, icon on/off)
  • Multiple select for bars/milestones

Look & Feel

  • First/last row – we have revamped the presentation of these rows to be more „in line“ with the rows between
  • Whole row coloring – based on Group/Subgroup color
  • Display milestones on collapsed levels
  • Left Axis/Additional column background
  • Horizontal Time Interval Zoom – you can zoom down to minutes (5 minutes intervals)
  • Default zoom level

Bug fixing

  • Milestones shapes and size persistency
  • Legend – correctly showing categories when filtering

Version 3.0.6

RELEASED General availability mid November 2023
This release is a service one, focused on bug fixing.

IMPORTANT! If you are using Color by Ranges for Milestones, it might not work properly and you will have to reset your ranges settings. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

New features

  • „Empty“ visual message – if there is nothing left to show (e.g. all data is filtered out, …), the message is displayed

Bug fixing

  • Time Axis resizing – Time Axis now resizes corretly when data time span is changed (e.g. when filtering data)
  • Turning On/Off weekends in TimeAxis menu is now working as expected
  • Ranges color for Milestones corrected
  • Horizontal bars now showing when needed
  • Http/Https connections – visual works for both connections/protocols (e.g. on your internal servers, with some third party SW, etc.)

Version 3.0

RELEASED General availability on June 28th 2023

IMPORTANT! Please, pay attention to fiscal year settings on Time Axis. To be able to accomodate all possible fiscal year combinations, we had to change fiscal year settings and it can affect your actual appearence of Time Axis – labels of fiscal years and time axis intervals (different start of fiscal year). We are sorry for any inconvenience.

New features

  • Tree vs. Table view/hierarchy
    • You have 2 distinct options to organize hierarchy in Left Axis – Tree view with summary bars or more condensed Table view
    • New Table view allows you to have more rows visible while preserving hierarchy
    • You can easily choose the view in Left Axis settings
    • See our new demo files Case #2 for practical difference between Tree and Table view
  • Addional column content mapping
    • We have added new field to Fields pane „Additional column content“ to easily map the column content
    • You do not have to specify column content in your source data, you can just map any field or even measure into the field and it will appear in Additional column
    • Don’t forget you map the content for row (not single bar, etc.), so you must specify what calculation should be used when muiltiple values for one row are found (e.g. imagine you have multiple campaigns with expenses on the same row and you want to sum the expenses in Additional column)
    • New setting in menu Additional column – option Display (either Description field – same as before form your source data or calculation formula)
  • Sorting by date or by aplhabet
    • New menu for Sorting either by date/time or alphabetically + ascending/descending option
    • Sorting field is left if you want to apply some more sophisticated sorting algorithm (if you have this field mapped, the new menu will not appear in formatting settings)
  • Multiple Target lines/intervals
    • You can set as many Target lines and even Target intervals as you want/need – they will appear from top to bottom of the visual and can have titles/labels
    • They have to be specified in your source data – new data type „Target“
    • Targets formatting settings are based on Category field (same as for Bars/Milestones), so there is new formatting menu „Target Category Colors“ at the bottom of formatting pane (visible only when you have Targets in your source data)
    • See our new demo files Case #4 for multiple Targets
  • „Today“ focus
    • If enabled, it automatically centers visual display around today date each time the visual is updated (= reopened or shown again when returning from another report page)
    • New option in Zoom and Focus menu (previously known as Zooming menu)
  • Weekends On/Off
    • Weekends can be included/excluded from showing on Time Axis and can can also be formatted with different color
    • Settings and formatting for weekends color is available in menu Time Axis

Look & feel changes

  • New shapes for bars
    • Now you can choose from rectangle, skewed rectangtle (left/right), process arrows and process arrow with flat start
    • Main and additional bars can be changed separately (e.g. if you want your plan bar to look different than main bars)
    • Settings in formatting menu Bars
  • Text/Labels truncating
    • Truncating means to shorten the text with „…“ at the end to fit the assigned space (e.g. width of the bar, etc.)
    • It can be set in corresponding menus option „On text Overflow“/“Truncate Text“ – applies to Bars, Groups/SubGroups, Left Axis
    • „Truncate Text“ – text is truncated for one line only, for „Wrap Text“ option the text is automatically truncated on the last line (if it does not fit in the space)
  • Plan Bar positioning
    • Plan bar can be positioned „On top“, „Behind“ and now „Below“ Main bar
    • Thus all your text/labels within Main bar will be clearly visible
  • Milestones repositioning + text width
    • Yes, we know that milestones positioning is problem, especially when there is more milestones close together 🙂
    • Thus we are introducing experimental feature to automatically reposition milestones (horizontally)
    • New option in menu Milestones/On text overlapping/“Reposition and Show all“
    • Also, there is a new option to set „Max Text Width“ for Milestones labels/texts (-1 means show full and any other value set specific text width for all Milestones)
  • Column labels
    • Group, SubGroup and Left Axis columns now can have labels
    • Left Axis label moves when mouse over to see collapse/expand arrows
    • Labels are automatically truncated
  • Conditional formatting
    • Conditional formatting enabled for Bars/Milestones colors (only, not shapes, etc.)
    • In Bars/Milestones menu there is a new „fx“ next to Default Color, it brings you to the standard Power BI conditional formatting menu


  • Significant performance improvements especially for large data sets …
  • Updated demo files + Tips – redesigned demo files including new demo cases and Tips (available on the release date)
  • Some bug fixing

Version 2.6

RELEASED General availability start of February 2023
This release is a service one – more about bug fixing and small changes.

New features

  • Hour time interval
    • The smallest time interval is now hour (e.g. for shift planning etc.)
    • You can choose from 12H/24H format for showing time in Time Axis setting
    • When any time axis is showing hours, the hours (time) from the source data are fully respected. Otherwise, if there’s a non zero time in source data, this time is respected regardless of what the view scale is.
    • Also, the minimal Nice range value is now day, to better work with hour intervals
  • Other
    • DIN font added

Bug fixing

  • When main bars are overlapping and additional bar is OFF or is BEHIND main bar, bar texts are not overlapping anymore
  • Color by Ranges setting is now working
  • Legend fixes: When groups are not visible and bars are colored by groups, group colors show in Legend. When colored by ranges, legend shows used ranges and their colors, Legend colors reflect opacity of bars / milestones
  • When milestones placed at the bottom of bars, the milestones of the most bottom bars are visible
  • Expanding/collapsing arrows hide when Left Axis is hidden
  • Zooming and scrolling panel positioning is improved if the height of the chart is too low

Version 2.5

RELEASED General availability on October 5th 2022

IMPORTANT! Automatic update from AppSource may cause „swapping“ of mapped fields in current reports – most probably swapping of Axis Y and Group fields. You have to remap the fields back. And in some cases, there can be variations in Category settings (colors, …) for Milestones.
We are sorry, but we hope, that the large set of new features compensates for a possible rework. Thank you for understanding.
