Classroom training -  Bookmarks + Report Tooltips

Online Training

Using bookmarks, report tooltips and visual header tooltips

Live online training course

£195 + VAT (where applicable)

3 hours (either 09:00-12:00 or 13:30-16:30 UK time)

This half-day course involves probably our two favourite things in Power BI:

  • Using bookmarks to make reports easier to use, by providing buttons, tabs and other ease-of-use features; and
  • Creating report page tooltips (so that when you hover over a figure, bar or column you see a pop-up window showing its breakdown).

As a bonus, the course will also show setting visual header tooltips (giving help buttons for your visuals).

We don't have any dates scheduled for this online course. We may consider adding more dates - it's always worth asking. Alternatively, if you have a handful of like-minded people in your organisation, you could consider booking your own customised online course to run on a date convenient to you!

"I really enjoyed the course. I thought the pace and content was perfect for an introduction, I learnt a lot from it. The trainer was very clear in his explanation, thought he was great in encouraging conversation etc to build rapport with the group. (SQL) I found the course to be engaging, relatable and very well structured. The trainer was great in his explanations and always made time for any questions we had. (SSRS) "

How our live online training courses work

We've published a full summary of what it's like to attend a Wise Owl course online - here are the main things you need to know.

What you'll need

You'll need three things for the course:

  1. A computer (obviously) running Windows.
  2. A good internet connection.
  3. A microphone and (ideally) webcam.

In addition you'll find the course very difficult without an additional monitor (so that you can participate in the course on one screen, and use the software you're learning on the other).

What will happen when you book a place

Within a few hours of your booking a place on one of our online courses, we'll be in touch to get you set up correctly.  This usually takes about half an hour, and can be done at any mutually convenient date/time.

A few days before your course begins you'll receive a parcel in the post (free for UK bookings) containing:

  • A full colour courseware manual;
  • An exercise booklet to go with the course; and
  • A USB stick containing the files for the course, should you need a back-up.

Your parcel will even include a Wise Owl Sheaffer biro (they're good; trust us) and pad.

What you won't need

You won't need to install any software at all on your computer.  This is because:

  • you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed; and
  • we use Teams for our online training, which you can run through most modern browsers.
On and after the course

On the day of the course itself you will be able to join the course up to half an hour before it begins. This will give you time to:

  • familiarise yourself with the set-up;
  • meet your trainer; and
  • get to know the other delegates!

After the course finishes you'll receive an electronic certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).
