While this feature has been available for a while many Power BI analysts don’t know how to take advantage of it nor the best practices and May will be covering these exciting capabilities. The second presentation will be by myself and a look at an upcoming feature that will enable initiating a Power Automate Flow from a new button type in Power BI.

Our Presenters:

May Alhajri

May’s own words: Don’t think inside the box and don’t think outside the box…Don’t even know where the box is. You can’t force creatives into a box. If you try, they’ll no longer be creative. And no one will want your box.
Digital world is my place.
