  • New features:

    • The HTML VizCreator Cert (old name: HTML Text Styler) is certified by Microsoft 🤩 This is a major milestone for the visual. The Microsoft certification means that experts from Microsoft have looked at the source code of the visual and confirmed that the visual is secure to use and does not access any external sources. Read more about it in this blog post.

  • Removed features:

    • Due to the certification, the visual is no longer able to access external sources HTML tags which are considered unsafe no longer work. For users which need these features, we have developed a brand new visual. The new HTML VizCreator Flex (old name: HTML & CSS Viewer) can still access external sources and can also deal with CSS and SVG. If you are not sure which of the visuals is right for you, simply reach out to us, we're happy to help.

New features:

  • Tooltip functionality was added to the visual.


  • The visual was sometimes not showing spaces correctly.

Many additional features were added and bugs were fixed. This was also the time in which the visual became popular so we decided to put more effort into the changelog in the future.
