About this course
Firstly, congratulations on reaching module four.
To begin with I’ll give you a quick summary of this module content. I’ll use a file I have already created in an earlier module and upload that to Power BI service. Next, I create a dashboard utilising the published files content. Having completed that I’ll show you how questions can be asked of the data using natural language.
Next, I’ll move onto housekeeping such as how to update a file, republish to show amend changes, and how this process can be automated.
To publish a report to Power BI service online all you need to do is click the Publish icon.
Having published your report to Power BI service you can initiate an automatic analysis of your data using artificial intelligence (AI).
A dashboard is your user's interface to your report.
Power BI Online has several options
If I update a report the dashboard will reflect those changes but any changes to the filters or the layout of the chart will not.
Ask questions of your data like you do when you search the internet.
Quite often a department or individual will ask the same questions.
Power BI really comes into its own when reports are shared with people across the organisation in a format that is meaningful to individuals.
Data changes will arise and data models need to update to show the latest version.
Often dashboards, reports display a lot of content, which means to be able to view all the visuals users will have to scroll up and down the page.
Windows Tablet, Android, iPad, iPhone App
Printing a dashboard and or reports is a straightforward process.
I have shown how to share and print but there is another way to share your report.
You may be thinking how can you determine what users can and cannot do.
The workshop is an important opportunity for you to confirm what you do or don’t understand. Mistakes are often a better learning experience than getting everything right the first time so if you do make mistakes no one needs to know. On the positive side, you are unlikely to repeat your error. Good luck.
