The February 2020 update only contains one big change - incremental refresh
Part one of a three-part series of blogs

The February 2020 Power BI update only really introduces one new feature - the ability to partition your data so that Power BI only needs to refresh the most recent changes.

Power BI - February 2020 updates

After missing out January's update altogether, we had high hopes for February's - but as it turns out, all of the big changes are waiting in preview.

This blog shows the following new features:

Feature Notes
Incremental refresh You can tell Power BI to load only part of your data.
Preview features The new ribbon is still waiting in preview, as is the new hierarchical slicer.

There are also two new DAX functions (FirstNonBlankValue and LastNonBlankValue), but they barely deserve this mention!

A very quiet month ...
