Top 3 Types of Power BI Custom Visuals

Power BI custom visuals are divided into three categories  
Custom Visual Files

The custom visual files (.pbiviz) contain the code to run custom visuals in your Power BI app. Custom visual codes are created by developers and packaged in custom visual files with .pbiviz extension. Customers or report creators save these files to their computers and use them in Best Power BI reports. However, one crucial point to remember is that the custom visual you’re importing must come from a reliable source. There should be no security or privacy risks in the custom visual.

Organizational Visuals
Organizational visuals are visualisations created specifically for usage within a company. Every company has its own work-flows and business methods. As a result, they demand tools and approaches to meet their business needs. Microsoft Power BI allows you to create unique visuals that are suited to your organization’s needs. Developers within the company can design custom visualisations to depict data patterns and information that is important to the company. The deployment and control of the custom organisational visuals are handled by the Power BI admin (administrator). The admin adds custom visuals to the organisational visuals repository through the Power BI Admin Portal. These custom visuals are then imported into Power BI Desktop for use by users or report authors. As a result, these visualisations are now available for usage in reports and analysis by the data analyst.
Marketplace Visuals

Microsoft and its community members have tested and approved creative images for the Marketplace. AppSource is where power bi custom visualization is created and uploaded. This is done as a community service to help Power BI customers, who can utilize these custom visuals to explore new areas of their data. Connect with us to learn how to import custom visuals from Marketplace and AppSource. Some Microsoft images are subjected to considerably more stringent quality and risk testing. Certified Visuals are those that have passed such examination. These visualisations also have some extra features, such as email subscriptions, PowerPoint export, and so on.
