*Joining the group* We've had to switch on approval of new members since we have had several spammers join and immediately post inappropriate messages. My apologies for that.

We are open to all and all our events are free. Our in-person events are held in central London. We started online during the lockdown and our audience is now from around the world.

Power BI: The Cash Flow Statement

Online event

In this third instalment of financial reporting we will build the Cash Flow statement. This will be done using the Indirect Method (which is permissible under both IFRS and US GAPP) and as such an understanding of the previous sessions would be helpful - these are available at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfXiJFEcztTpMmEDT0I8cPg

The Cash Flows indirect method starts with Profit Before Income and Tax from the Income Statement and then adjusts for all the non-cash items from the Income Statement and Balance Sheet.

The datasets and Power BI files shown in this session are in the "Cash Flow Statement" folder at https://bit.ly/33zWQtp

Data Analysis Using Power BI for Beginners - Pragati Jain

• Report page, canvas, gridline & page settings - to familiarise ourselves with the tool interface
• Available Data source connections – files, folders, azure, database, etc.
• Different types of filters – visual level, page level & report level
• In-built data hierarchy in the data
• Show and tell about Report, Data and Model View in Power BI
• A walkthrough by loading a sample data csv/excel file in Power BI and start looking at few data transformations/cleaning in Query editor
• Basic data cleaning and transformations using query editor – modifying datatypes, handling missing values, creating new custom column, adding an index column

Once the data is loaded, we will start by generating few basic charts:
• Basic visuals for reporting – line charts, bar charts, columns charts, pie-charts, card visual, tree-maps
• Edit Interactions functionality to control the interactions among different visuals on the report
