Small Multiples in Power BI

I have been spending the past few months getting more familiar with Power BI.   There is a lot of information available, but it is sometimes hard to find exactly what I am looking for.   As I have been creating reports and visualizations in Power BI, one thing I have been missing is “small multiples”.   For those that are not familiar with the term “small multiples”, it is sometimes called a trellis chart, lattice chart, grid chart or panel chart.   It is a series of similar charts using the same scale and axes, allowing them to easily be compared.   The advantage is that it uses multiple views to show different dimensions of the dataset. This is a visualization many other tools have, but until yesterday I have not been able to create them in Power BI.   As I mentioned there is a lot of information available for Power BI, and there are also a lot of custom visualizations available.   I had looked in the Office Store before, and I had searched small multiples, but with no success
