With the upcoming Microsoft Power Platform Release Wave 1, I wanted to provide a guide to the community of the upcoming feature enhancements that will help make a difference in your deployments. The intention is to provide rolling commentary across the next couple of weeks with a focus on each of the major products within the Power Platform, starting with today with Power BI.
As with previous release waves, the upcoming Microsoft Power BI 2022 Wave 1 release has a number brand new capabilities that are focused on collaboration, performance, and administration.
Here is my top 10 of new features that you should be across in this release.
Today the NDA is lifted on 2020 Release Wave 1 for Dynamics
365 and Power Platform.
In this blog I will be covering the User Experience (UX) enhancements within this release focusing particularly on the new visualisations, user interface improvements, and extensibility of controls across Model-Driven, Canvas, Mixed Reality, and Portals.
One of the current limitations of using PowerBI with Dynamics 365, is that it will not automatically map your OptionSet values with labels. For example if you have defined OptionSet values for Gender as 1 = Male, 2 = Female within PowerBI visualisations this would appear as 1 and 2 rather than Male and Female. Thankfully Gap Consulting have created a nice XrmToolBox plugin called the “PowerBI Option-Set Assistant” to work around this limitation.
Microsoft make it incredibly easy to create and share content, including content from PowerBI onto other platforms. PowerBI is a powerful business analytics service that comes with a host of features to present data and visualisations to all your stakeholders, both inside your network and in this case outside your network. Today we will be looking at the Publish to Web feature within PowerBI.
