(Shared via Microsoft’s Power BI Blog) It’s an exciting time to be a Power BI user – and if you’re new to the service, it’s a perfect time to get started! As Microsoft ramps up their spring offerings, Power BI’s regularly updated features have continued to resonate with users and help businesses achieve their goals with dataset monitoring, trend analytics and database insights that are user-friendly for all levels of experience. April’s recent roll out announcement continues to expand on Power BI’s features. Included in the announcement are these new and notable updates:
- Small multiples: padding controls and combo chart support
- New and improved shapes
- Invert axis and continuous axis sorting
- New Connector: Bloomberg Data and Analytics
- Automatic Table Detection from Excel files now generally available
- Easy report sharing via links
- New capabilities in Deployment Pipelines
- Microsoft Charticulator visual

Tallan developers are especially excited for the new sharing experience, which as of April 5, 2021, was listed as “coming very soon from Power BI.”
Users with access to this feature will be able to create sharable links for people within their organization (with the exception of guest users), specific people and those with existing access. You’ll also be able to indicate the inclusion links for resharing and build permissions. Additionally, Power BI has added a tenant admin setting in order to disable or enable sharing. Learn more about the revamped sharing experience over at the Microsoft Power BI Blog.
