Power BI August Updates

Power BI August Updates

September 09, 2019

What's New?

Power BI Desktop has had a lot of updates in the past month after Microsoft hosted its Business Application Summit.  There are entirely new features available, as well as some existing feature updates.

Here’s a quick highlight of the some of the key updates.

Reporting

Grouping visuals – grouping allows you to group visuals, shapes, textboxes, images and buttons together on your report page, as you can do so in PowerPoint. Once grouped together, users can move and resize them at the same time, making it easier to work with reports with lots of objects layered on each page.

Analytics

Key influencers improvements – you can now use measures in the Analyze bucket of the key influencers visual. Measures are evaluated based on the fields you include in the Explain by bucket. With measure support now added, the general availability of the key influencers visual has been announced.

Visualisations

xViz visualisation suite by Visual BI – Visual BI, who make the ValQ value driver tree visual, are releasing a suite of new visuals available in AppSource called xViz. They are highly customisable and completely free up until 2000 data points. Visuals available include the Multiple Axis chart, the Marimekko chart, the Variance chart and the Horizon chart.

Template apps

Facebook Pages (Basic Analytics) – template apps are a great way to provide Power BI users with installable and ready to use applications. Microsoft has announced they are going to start regularly sharing new or popular template apps in their blogs, with the first being the Facebook Pages – Basic Analysis template app. This app provides marketers with the simplest way to analyse any Facebook page in Power BI without being the page administrator.

Check out even more updates from this month here and get excited for what might be in-store next!
