Azure Weekly - Power BI Weekly #155 - 3rd May 2022

Power BI Weekly Newsletter Issue #155

powered by endjin

Welcome to the 155th edition of Power BI Weekly! Some really cool news is that Analyze in Excel Workbooks are now saved to OneDrive for Business, which helps lower the barrier to entry even further for Excel users consuming Power BI datasets, especially those potentially using alternative OSs. We've also been told about the updates around High availability, load balancing and troubleshooting for the Vnet gateway.

Elsewhere this week, Antriksh Sharma has described some interesting Complex behaviour of slicers in Power BI, Meagan Longoria has shared some handy Viridis color palettes in Power BI theme files, and Kelly Kaye has hosted The Power BI Community Show Ep 3 - talking about Known Issues, Reports & Visuals, and Power BI Certifications with guests Michele Hart, Reid Havens and Shannon Lindsay.
