Power BI app update with Q&A on your dataset!

Power BI app update with Q&A on your dataset!

Today I received again a new update of the Power BI appĀ on my iPhone. I was really happy with the release notes:

  • Q&A support / ask your data in Preview

When you open a report in Power BI, you see now at the button a chat button (beside the favorite button):

When you click on the button, you get a Q&A window:

Here you can ask the question. The great thing is that Power BI is already providing you sample question about the dataset. Below an example I asked the data, I get a report with a graph!

For Internet of Things projects I use a lot Microsoft Power BI to display the telemetry of sensors of predictions from Azure Machine Learning. One thing that was always difficult when I share (or somebody shared) a dashboard with somebody else, you didn’t get any notification in Microsoft Power BI. But that changed with the Power BI Notification Center. In the menu of Power BI you see a new icon with new and old notifications:

The great thing with Power BI that is available on all platforms (like iOS). The notifications are shown on all platforms! See below for a iPhone screenshot:

In the menu you will also see the history of all notifications. In the future more types of notifications will be available!
