New features introduced in the May 2019 update of Power BI
Part five of a six-part series of blogs

There's not much new in this month's update. The Performance Analyzer is a great idea, for working out which bits of your report are running slowly, but all of the other changes are minor (as you'll see if you read this blog!).

  1. Changes to Power BI in the May 2019 Update
  2. Analysing the speed of Power BI reports
  3. Speeding up reports
  4. Small changes for line chart and KPI labels
  5. Improvements to geolocation in ArcGIS Maps (this blog)
  6. Features currently in preview for Power BI

For a cumulative list of all of the updates to Power BI Desktop in the last few years see this blog, or have a look at the Power BI courses that we run.

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our blogs. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

When you view errors (as above), you can copy the results to the clipboard:

Apparently "in addition, the Esri team has also added a much faster map loading experience when you add a map visual to the report" (I'm quoting Microsoft directly).
