Updates to Power BI Desktop for September 2022
Part two of a four-part series of blogs
You can now format reports differently for mobile view and display X axis labe`s hierarchically by default. One other tiny change is that default column titles in tables now include the summarisation method used.
So you've always been able to do this:
You can click on this icon to design how your report should look when viewed through the Power BI mobile app on Android or Apple IoS.
The difference now is that you have access to the full range of formatting tools (at least, I think it's the full range):
Here I've switched to Mobile View and am formatting a table.
Changes you make to formatting will overwrite changes made in normal view:
The symbol shown selected means that someone has made changes to some of the properties on this format card in mobile view.
You can expand a card to see exactly which properties have been overwritten:
It's the column headers' Text property which someone has changed.
Loitering over this icon with your mouse shows more clearly what's going on:
This tooltip shows that mobile view changes override desktop view changes.
So Microsoft are basically maintaining two different versions of the same report: the visuals and data are the same, but the formatting can be completely different.
For the first time this makes it possible to have the same report look good on both desktop computers and mobiles. I would have loved to end this blog with a view of a mobile report, but the Microsoft Authenticator app is not letting me sign in to my mobile Power BI account!
