Advanced Power BI Reports

Classroom training course - online version also available

£795 + VAT for most venues (£950 + VAT for London)

2 days

If you've mastered the basics of creating Power BI reports, you may like to find out what else they can do (although you should only consider attending this course if you already know the basics of Power BI).  Among other things on this course, you will learn:

  • what all those extra visuals in the visualisations pane do;
  • new ways to analyse your data using smart narratives, Q&A visuals and analytics; and
  • how to make your reports easier to use using tooltips and bookmark ideas.

This course is a companion to our two-day Advanced Power BI Data classroom / online course, which shows advanced ways to work with data in Power BI (there is no overlap between the two courses).
