There has been quite a few changes and updates since I last reviewed my Power BI Overview Infographic. I thought it was time for an update, and here is what has been updated.

Please feel free to share this with other people new to Power BI, or people who want to get a more general feeling of all the moving parts in Power BI.

Here is a link to where you can find the Power BI Overview InfoGraphic as well as what the main page of the Infographic looks like.


The bookmark feature has been blogged about quite a lot, and it is a great edition to enable better story telling using Power BI.

You can find details about bookmarking here: Use bookmarks to share insights and build stories in Power BI (Preview)

Selection Pane

The selection pane allows you to control if an item in your report will be made visible or not visible (Invisible maybe!)

It is also a great way when there is a lot of items on your report page, to select the item from the Selection Pane, which will then have it selected for you.

You can also use to show or hide items from the Selection Pane as part of your Bookmarks, so you can make it appear as if items are moving or vanishing from your report.

The Power BI team has already made some improvements by allowing you to order the items in the Selection Pane.

You can find more details here: Power BI Desktop Oct 2017 – Selection Pane

Lock Objects

This new feature allows you to lock Objects so that they will not move. This is great when you are showing people what you have been doing and are in edit mode.

As well as great for presentations when you do not want anything to move.

You can find more information here: Power BI Desktop Nov 2017 – Lock Objects
