BI-NSIGHT – Power BI (Mobile Apps Update Feb, Connecting from Power BI Mobile to SSRS, Embedding Power BI Reports)
As another month comes to a close, I am excited to see what the next week will bring. Hopefully some updates for Power BI Desktop and the service. Here is this week’s roundup.
Power BI – Mobile Apps Update for February
In this month’s mobile update they have made some additional actions when interacting with the Dashboard tiles on the mobile app. Making it easier to navigate to an underlying report, expand a tile or even look at the alerts.
A great addition is you now can have multiple SSRS Servers in your app (Currently iOS)
And finally they have made some improvements with regards to scrolling across all the mobile platforms. Which makes it a lot easier to navigate with the charts when it can possibly be so small to navigate.
