On September 14th 2017, I will be speaking to the Memphis PASS User Group! I will present SharePoint Business Intelligence options, including out of the box features, Excel, and Power BI.
Find details on the topic, as well as register on the Meetup page.
Thank you to the great group tonight – I enjoyed presenting and I hope you will have me back to dive deeper into some of the technologies we discussed.
Here are my slides: Business Intelligence Using SharePoint and Power BI – Memphis PASS
There were a few questions during meeting that I answered but wanted to make sure I followed-up on them – the list of questions & my answers are below:
- There was a question about Microsoft Flow and if it was ‘on par’ with the features in SharePoint Designer for workflow. Here is the Known issues and resolutions page Microsoft is maintaining for Flow: https://ms.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/release-notes/#known-issues-and-resolutions
- When Adding a Power BI report to a modern SharePoint page, are filters and options taken into account when show on the page? Yes they are!
- Is the Power BI report show on a modern SharePoint page a snapshot of the visuals or live data? If live, how is the data refreshed? The visuals shown are ‘live’ and will be refreshed when the report is changed or data is refreshed (scheduled within the Power BI service).
