BI-RoundUp – Power BI (Service & Mobile Update – Create Power BI reports from Excel & CSV Files in SharePoint Online)
Here is the weekly BI-RoundUp, so let’s get into it
Power BI – Service & Mobile Update
As you can see above there now is an option to share a report with the current filter and slicers that are enabled. This is great because it will mean that you can have a subscription report that will send it out every time with the applied filters and slicers.
There is the updated Gateway connections a lot easier with greater visibility to show you what you need to do to get it working.
The On-Premise Data Gateway has been updated to the June Edition of the Mashup Engine.
And finally, for the Mobile Report canvas they have increased the amount of tiles to be larger and longer.

Power BI – Create Power BI Reports from Excel or CSV Files in SharePoint Online
I was not aware that there have been updates in SharePoint online, where if you have got an Excel file with a table formatted or a CSV file, there is the option to now Open in Power BI.
This will then open it in Power BI and automatically be connected to your SharePoint Online files. Which in turn means when you update the files on SharePoint online, it will automatically be updated in the Power BI Service without having to use the On-Premise Data Gateway.
