[Online] Paginated Reports in an Hour

Online event

Join us *online* as we meetup again to share ideas around Power BI, Modern Excel, and Power Apps.

This month Alex Powers, Senior Program Manager of the Power BI Customer Advisory Team, joins to give us hands-on-keyboard training on paginated reports in Power BI. There are lots of occasions when paginated reports are called for over the "sliceable and diceable" reports you might be used to in Power BI, so this will be an invaluable technique in your BI toolset.

Paginated Reports in an Hour

This session will include a live hands-on-keyboard training for attendees, teaching you how to get started with creating Paginated Reports for Power BI to meet all your end user “Export-to” and Parameter based needs.

How to use data visualization to make better decisions—faster.

Many organizations don’t realize how much faster and more accurate their decision-making would be if they were better at data visualization. Indeed, most organizations struggle with seeing and understanding their data. (Think about some of those 100-page slide decks and 60-column spreadsheets.)

In this live session, best-selling author and data visualization consultant Steve Wexler will share insights on how to get your organization to "get" data visualization.

Attend and learn:
Why “just the numbers” isn't good enough
The “gateway drug” to data visualization
Why we see so many bar charts
Why most people make a mess of using color
The secret to engaging your stakeholders and the power of disaggregated data
What you should always, always, always keep in mind

If you’re new to data visualization, this webinar will help you understand the benefits of well-designed charts and dashboards. If you are experienced in data visualization, this webinar will help you evangelize its use in your organization.
