Visualize data in Power BI

Microsoft via Microsoft Learn


  • Module 1: Learn how to choose from the exceptional visuals that Power BI makes available to you. Formatting visuals will direct the user’s attention to exactly where you want it, while helping to make the visual easier to read and interpret. You will also learn about how to use key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • In this module, you will:

    • Add visualization items to reports.
    • Choose an effective visualization.
    • Format and configure visualizations.
    • Import a custom visual.
    • Add an R or Python visual.
  • Module 2: Power BI helps you create vibrant, highly useful reports that form a cohesive, data-driven story. You’ll learn how to use buttons, bookmarks, and other navigation techniques. Additionally, you’ll learn how to integrate Power BI reports with other applications. Power BI visuals can interact with each other, letting the user see exactly which data is appealing to them. You’ll also explore Power BI report themes to create a unified reporting experience across all reports.
  • In this module, you will:

    • Design a report layout.
    • Add buttons, bookmarks, and selections.
    • Design report navigation.
    • Use basic interactions.
    • Use advanced interactions and drillthrough.
    • Configure conditional formatting.
    • Apply slicing, filtering, and sorting.
    • Publish and export reports.
    • Comment on reports.
    • Use Performance analyzer to tune reports.
    • Optimize reports for mobile use.
  • Module 3: Microsoft Power BI dashboards are different than Power BI reports. Dashboards allow report consumers to create a single artifact of directed data that is personalized just for them. Dashboards can be comprised of pinned visuals that are taken from different reports. Where a Power BI report uses data from a single dataset, a Power BI dashboard can contain visuals from different datasets.
  • In this module, you will:

    • Set a mobile view.
    • Add a theme to the visuals in your dashboard.
    • Configure data classification.
    • Add real-time dataset visuals to your dashboards.
    • Pin a live report page to a dashboard.
  • Module 4: Paginated reports allow report developers to create Power BI artifacts that have tightly controlled rendering requirements. Paginated reports are ideal for creating sales invoices, receipts, purchase orders, and tabular data. This module will teach you how to create reports, add parameters, and work with tables and charts in paginated reports.
  • In this module, you will:

    • Get data.
    • Create a paginated report.
    • Work with charts and tables on the report.
    • Publish the report.
