¿Les ha pasado que dentro de una misma sección en un cuadro de mando de Power BI, algunos usuarios prefieren gráficas de barras y otros prefieren una tabla sencilla y y quedamos analizando como cubrir esa solicitud? ¿O que algunos usuarios solicitan ver indicadores de satisfacción del cliente, pero otros prefieren indicadores de desempeño de sus equipos? Si bien es cierto, podemos organizar cuadros de mandos que muestren la información en secciones y así darle la oportunidad a los usuarios que consulten el área de su preferencia, también podemos combinar todo dentro de una misma sección sin que se vea tan cargada. Al final, tener cuadros ...

While working in Power BI desktop, we often need to export to Excel some data sharing with customers or colleagues. Once shared, we don’t want these users to refresh the data. Coming with version 1.1.0, Power BI Sidetools exports your data into Excel with only one click. Then you can setup pivot tables, add theme & graphics, macros and do whatever you want. You can even generate a paginated report. Next time you will open this file from Power BI Sidetools, it will be refreshed and you will keep all the setup you did previously.

If you are just getting started with Power BI you may be seeing a lot of references to a 'Calendar' Table or 'Date Table.  Maybe you already have a handle on this aspect of PBI, but a lot of people seem not to understand how to get started.  If you forego having a 'Calendar' Table altogether, you can end up having a very cumbersome file and you won't be able to take advantage of many of the awesome date/time functions offered through Power BI.  There are quite a few good resources already out there.  This post points you to a few of those and helps you get started in both M and DAX. To turn off Time intelligence - here is a great blog resource:  ...

So, what's all that about, really? It's true that in spreadsheet applications like Excel, data type is not really of a bother to the user, as there is no functionality to define the type of the data present in cells. We just enter values and it's all fine (somehow). In fact, I only started to bother about data types when starting to use Power Query, Power BI and Power Pivot (data modelling tool in Excel). Power Query is less friendly with typeless ...

Hi Friend,  When New York was first picked as a stop on the Power Platform World Tour ,  the topic of how the Microsoft Power Platform was being used to influence change in the NY Taxicab system seemed fitting.
