There are only two small changes in the September 2020 Power BI Desktop update
Part one of a three-part series of blogs

You can now add total labels to a stacked or combination chart, and there are improvements to mobile layout, but in truth there's not much to get excited about for the September 2020 Power BI update.

  1. The September 2020 update to Power BI Desktop (this blog)
  2. Showing total labels for stacked and combo charts
  3. Various changes to mobile layout and the mobile app

We've been creating our idiosyncratic monthly blogs on Power BI updates since November 2016, and also deliver online and classroom Power BI courses.

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.

The September 2020 update to Power BI Desktop

The only changes which will have any effect on report writers this month are the following:

Change Notes
Total labels For stacked and combination charts, you can now display individual data point lablels, but also total labels.
Mobile layout improvements It's easier now to position visuals precisely on screen when designing reports for mobile view, and you can also view the effects of bookmarks.

There's an interesting new feature called Smart Narratives, which allow you to generate a text summary of all of the visuals on a page, but this is in preview for the moment.
