It is great to be back and already into the swing of a new year. 2019 has already started with a lot of new features already coming into the Power Platform. I am looking forward to the year ahead and no doubt will see a lot of new features coming.

Here is this week’s Power BI RoundUp

Power BI – Time-Based scheduling for Email Subscriptions

I know of a lot of clients who have been asking for the capability to be able to send the subscription emails at the same time every day.

This is now possible thanks to the great work by Chris Finlan and his team.

You now have multiple options on how to schedule the email subscriptions, where you can also schedule up to 24 subscriptions per report or dashboard.

Power BI – Report Server Update

As promised there has been a massive update for Power BI Report Server.

Almost all the Power BI Desktop features that have been previously released are included in this update to the Power BI Report Server.

I am not going to go into detail as these have all be covered off before. In the section below you can find more details if required.

Power BI – Monetize Custom Visuals

If you have created custom visuals and you want to generate some income from your custom visuals this now can be done through the AppSource.

It is done where there is the ability to complete an in-app purchase.

Thanks for reading, I hope you found this useful. I know I personally come back to my own blog posts when looking for certain things.
