Roadmaps showing future changes to Power BI

So there are now three ways that we know of to see what's coming to Power BI!

Method 1 - Preview Features

Power BI options

Choose this menu option.


This then allows you to see what's waiting in preview:

Preview features

Features coming to a desktop near you soon.

Method 2 - release notes

Many of the changes have already been incorporated, but the ones for September make exciting reading!

I don't know whether this blog will be refreshed every 6 months, but it's certainly worth revisiting this page regularly to see if it's updated.

Method 3 - BI new features

Mysteriously, Microsoft have a separate webpage which gives a slightly longer-term view of changes coming for Power BI, but essentially seems to say the same things:

Forthcoming changes

Some of the changes coming to Power BI Desktop soon.

Of these changes the new Office ribbon is the one which makes our hearts sink, as we will have to - yet again - update all of our courseware!
