New features introduced in the May 2019 update of Power BI
Part one 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 (this blog)
  2. Analysing the speed of Power BI reports
  3. Speeding up reports

Changes to Power BI in the May 2019 Update

After a bumper update last month, there's understandably not much to shout about this time round (although if you're struggling with reports running slowly, you'll welcome the new Performance Analyzer tab):

Change Notes
New performance analyzer If a report is running slowly, you can now see which visuals or queries are the culprits.
Speeding up reports Microsoft have introduced a couple of behind-the-scenes changes to speed up report execution.
Minor visual improvements You can now position line chart labels better, and change the text size of KPI labels.
ArcGIS geolocation errors If you have geo-location errors in an ArcGIS map, you can now copy these to the clipboard.

I did say there wasn't much new this month! 

As ever, you can see what's coming up in future releases here.
