  1. Dashboard in a day errata

    I went through the Dashboard in a Day document twice. It's very useful and put together well. The second time I took notes about things that confused me and could be improved.

    After Step 11, need to click "Connect"
    After Step 17, same
    Step 19-23, differentiate highlighting and selecting the checkbox, they are used interchangeably and it's confusing.
    Step 39 "click on" should be highlight. Need consistency.
    Page 17, step 17 is blank
    Page 24, step 73, "select Enable Load", what is meant is to remove the check from the checkbox. That should be clear.
    Page 34, step 53, click…

    • Supply PowerBI Report Server (not SRSS) default colors.json file for branding

      Typically you want to just tweak a few things from the default, e.g. just a company logo. So you would need the Microsoft default colors.json as starting point.
      There is a default for SRSS available, but not for PowerBI report server.

        • Receivable or Inventory aging measure?

          Does anybody know Aging measure?
          Most of solutions are not working properly.
          Databear - receivable solution and BI4dynamics- receivable solutions are working great.

                            • d

                              Dax is powerful and yet the power often comes with complexity. For the less experienced like me it would be great to have the following function.
                              After creating a table visual it would be great to be able to turn the table into an actual DAX expression to use that table as a start for new calculations.
                              Imagine a table visual is created, select copy to new table.
                              PowerBI creates the DAX syntax and table.

                                • Make Medicare open source datasets available to create custom reports in Power BI

                                  Open source government healthcare data is readily available, and the application of Power BI to create reports and insights has been demonstrated by Microsoft (see link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7bjAkECHmw).
                                  Has Microsoft considered making the data available (with routine refreshes) as a Power BI dataset for public consumption so that users can create their own custom reports?
