Do More in Power BI with Paginated Reports

Online event

May the Twelfth Be With You. Power BI expert Angel Abundez, with an assist from R2D2, will show you how to create paginated reports in Power BI.

One report type that often gets overlooked in Power BI is Paginated Reports. Paginated reports round out the Power BI toolset by providing features that regular PBIX files weren’t designed for: customized subscriptions, operational reporting, data exports. If you know SQL Server Reporting Services, than you’re in luck because it’s the same technology. The development process is a little different, but once you’ve completed your paginated report, there’s a lot you can do with it within the Power Platform.

You will learn:

* The development process of a Paginated Report
* How to prep your data through DAX queries
* Different use cases of Paginated Reports (web interfaces and subscription types)
* How to create custom subscriptions with Power Automate
* Licensing options for Paginated Reports (new Premium Per User now available)

Building an Engaging Power BI Report

Online event

Brendan Phan will show you how to maintain multiple bookmarks, buttons, and visuals in a Power BI report. You'll also see how to allow slicers and filters to persist. Coherently applying all these things together helps builds a creative report that is easy to navigate for the end-users. Although these things may seem simple to the end-user, there are many steps to applying different features in Power BI.

This is a follow up to Chennie Teng's "How to Build An Interactive Power BI Report" presentation.*

You will learn how to:
• Build a more engaging report using buttons and bookmarks
• Use advanced techniques to allow slicers and report page filters to persist when switching between bookmarks
• Use the selection pane to hide specific visuals and slicers
• Combine the selection pane, bookmarks, and buttons to display specific visuals

Brendan Phan is a Report Developer at DesignMind. He focuses on developing Power BI reports and dashboards.
