This document describes the first steps on how to use trueChart for Power BI.
It is assumed that trueChart is already installed. If not, consult the trueChart Installation Guide to get a detailed explanation of the installation process.
Furthermore, users must be created in order for the trueChart visual to communicate with the trueChart service. If you need help, consider reading the trueChart Service Guide.
To add trueChart to your report, choose trueChart from the visualization menu. This will create a new empty trueChart visual.
Figure 1. Clicking on the trueChart icon will create a new visual on yourreport.
Now add some data from Power BI’s Fields pane. At least one dimension and one measure must be selected.

After adding data to trueChart Visualisation it is needed to specify a static or dynamic user name in order to support the commenting functionality. This is only necessary for trueChart Server.
Find additional information here: Setup user binding.
In order to get a clearer representation of the trueChart visualization, it is recommended to select the representation under View > Actual size.

Congratulations! You’ve just created your first trueChart visualization and successfully added data to the display. Information about the further configuration of trueChart can be found in the general introduction.
