Here are this week’s updates, with May starting next week I am looking forward to some interesting updates with regards to Power BI.

Power BI – Meet 1:1 with Microsoft Expert

If you are attending the Microsoft Data Insights Summit you now have the opportunity to have a 1:1 session with a Microsoft Engineer for 15 minutes. If I was attending this is something that I would have already signed up to before blogging.

You can find the details here: Meet 1:1 with a Microsoft expert at Microsoft Data Insights Summit – book your appointment today!

Power BI – May & June Webinars

As you can see below here are the May & June Power BI Webinars

You can find all the details for the Webinars here: May and June Webinars: Power BI Security, Best Practices from the Microsoft Operations Team, Power BI Embedded, Marco Russo on Design and more!

Power BI – Download Samples as PBIX Files

I have to say that in the past when I was using the Power BI Sample data, I did wonder why there were not any sample PBIX files.

Now they have created and enabled the downloading of the PBIX files in the link below.

Power BI – Quick Measures Gallery

After the success and implementation of the Quick Measures in Power BI Desktop there now is the Quick Measures Gallery.

In this gallery you can now submit what you would like to see added to the future Quick Measures in Power BI. I think that this is a great initiative, because it not only allows people to have their own measures featured in the Power BI Desktop, but it also allows people to view the Gallery, view the measures and use them for their own requirements.

You can find the blog post here: Introducing the Quick Measures Gallery

Power BI – Mobile App Update April

In this month’s Mobile App update they have released to all the platforms the capability to be able to have the background colour. As well as a lot of bug improvements and performance fixes.

Also in the blog post they did mention the option to develop custom visuals for Mobile phones. Which I thought was quite interesting.
