Changes introduced in the Power BI Desktop May 2023 update
Part five of a five-part series of blogs
The big event this month is the (long-awaited) release of Azure Maps, but the May 2023 update also includes the official launch of the Optimize ribbon and allows you to use measures as data labels, among other changes.
In addition to the changes I've covered already, here are some other changes in this month's update.
The new DAX MATCHBY function
This is a very niche function indeed, designed as it is to get round a problem which can occur with the DAX window functions I blogged about recently.
New matrix accessiblity features
Microsoft have expanded the range of keyboard shortcuts that you can use when navigating in a matrix visual.
I've previously blogged about incremental refresh. You can now have a table which combines import mode and DirectQuery mode in a single table. This is a fantastic feature if you link to large DirectQuery datasets, but isn't really in keeping with the ethos of this series of blogs (explaining changes for report authors in Power BI Desktop).
There's also something called Microsoft Fabric in preview, which brings together Synapse tools, Power BI and a new data storage platform called OneLake in a single package. I find it much harder to get excited about this than Microsoft!
