Power BI: Personalize Visuals Feature

 

 Have you used the personalize visuals feature yet in Power BI?  If not, then you could be missing out.  The Personalize Visuals feature allows anyone you are sharing your with after published to the Power BI service to make changes to your visuals.  Have no fear though!  When they change the visuals it will not override your original report.

 

This feature is great if you have ever had to respond to a request from your shared users that they would like the report to be modified to their liking.  With this simple feature, the end-user can change the visualization type, change what measures or fields that are brought into the visual, and then simply make a personal bookmark after they make the changes.  Again, this will not change the initial report you published and that others have access to.  This will only make a new view of the report for the user who personalized the visual.

 

If you decide to use this feature you can limit what visuals you want to allow end-users to personalize as well as what fields you want them to have access to when making their personalization.  To see this in action take a look at this video.

Pizza and DAX are my Love Languages

Okay, okay, not really. Beer is though. But if my wife asks, it's "quality time spent with her watching British dramas on PBS Masterpiece." In all seriousness, if you are new to Power BI - then DAX may seem like a foreign language.  Do you want to find out some quick tips or best practices?  Well, let me give you a few tips that were helpful to me when first starting to write DAX formulas. The TAB key is your best friend.   Don’t try to type everything character for character for your formulas.   Just type until you the formula, column, table, etc. shows up directly under the formula bar.   Once, it is there hit the tab button and it automatically promotes it into your formula bar.  Is the formula text too small for you?   It’s always too small for me when doing demonstrations for others.   Place your cursor in the formula bar.   Hold down the control key on your keyboard and use your mouse scroll wheel to make the text larger or smaller. Would you like to move to a new l

Loading Folders as Data Sources in POWER BI

  Power BI can connect to a plethora of different data sources.   Did you know Power BI can also make loading multiple files at one time a cinch?   There is an option from the Get Data icon for “Folder”.   Wait, a folder is not a data source, is it?   Well, all the files in that folder are for sure data sources. So what makes the “Folder” option something you need to know about?   Do you get new files with the same column structure sent to you on a set time frame and then have to go and append them to your existing file?   Have you ever found yourself appending multiple files over and over that have the same column structure?   If you answered yes to any of those last 2 questions, then you are going to fall in love with the “Folder” data source. Simply put, the “Folder” option allows you to bring in all of your files at once into Power BI.   You will then make all of your transforms on one sample file and Power BI will automate the process across all the files of your choosing and

Remove Duplicates And Keep Most Recent Records in Power BI

  A week ago in my last training, I was demonstrating how to get rid of duplicate records when making a dimension table.   One of the people in attendance asked is there a way to get rid of duplicates but keep the most recent duplicate record based on a date column.   I thought, “Of Course!”.   All we need to do is use the Query editor, do a sort on the date column, and then get rid of duplicates.   Unbeknownst to me, it didn’t work.   It kept the oldest record and not the newest.    The reason being after doing some research is that the Power Query editor will make determinations if it can do some of your steps in a different order and still give you the same result while producing the quickest data load.   Normally, that is what an ideal Power BI user wants, but in this case, we need the sort to happen before the remove duplicates step.   Thus, after research comes in the function Table.Buffer to modify our sort code.    Take a look at my video for a further explanation and demonstra
