Power BI June 2020 update - summary of new features
What's new in the June 2020 update of Power BI? Not much (at least in comparison to the last 2 or 3 busy months):
|Hierarchical slicers||You can include more than one field in a slicer.|
|Mobile report designer||It's easier now to create reports customised for mobile phones.|
|Line chart dot colours||You can show different points on a line chart using different colours|
|Automatic refresh||If you're using Direct Query, you can tell Power BI to refresh your data periodically, or when a measure changes.|
|AI insights||You can access Microsoft's text and image AI programs ... if you have a Power BI Premium licence.|
Oh, and the new Power BI ribbon is now officially live, and not just a preview feature (but you've probably been using it for a couple of months already).
