Power BI November 2021 Update
This month's update is a big one, but the biggest change (how often have I written this?) is now waiting in preview: completely new formatting cards.
Because the new formatting cards will have such a big impact and are such a good innovation, I've broken my self-imposed rule and included them - at least in summary - in this blog.
Here are the changes introduced in this month's update:
|Formatting tools and scorecards||This month includes two new preview features: scorecards (which are really more of a Power BI Service tool) and the wonderful new formatting pane.|
|Page navigators||You can now create buttons allowing users to navigate between pages of your report, which Power BI will keep up to date as you add, rename and delete pages.|
|Bookmark navigators||Similarly you can now create an automatic menu to list all of the bookmarks in a group, making it easier to give your report users choices of what they want to see.|
|Two small chart improvements||You can now change the start angle for drawing pie and donut charts, and also sort the legend of stacked or clustered charts.|
|Improvements to text boxes||You can now add bullet points to text boxes, and also use superscript or subscript fonts.|
As always, you can see details of all of the Power BI training we offer here.
