A Power BI dashboard has been shared with you. Ready to dive in? Learn how to get the most out of it with the Power BI dashboard essentials every user should know.

Get familiar with Power BI dashboard terminologies, learn to slice and dice the data through slicers, filters and drill down capabilities, and ask questions, to get results from underlying datasets.

Join this session to learn about best practices for visualizing your data in Power BI dashboards, and clearly communicating actionable insights.

Dashboard terminologies

Understand common terminologies related to dashboards, reports, datasets and workspaces to have more effective communication.

Slicing the data

Recognize and use the different kinds of slicers and selections possible in Power BI – regular, chiclet, hierarchical, single-select, multi-select and search values within slicers. We will use a weekly planning summary report created for a major retailer to get insights on different divisions, departments and channels.

Report filters

Wondering about the validity or scope of the data and want to see what’s included or excluded? Learn about the different kinds of filters applied by the report creators at the Report, Page and Visual levels. We will use a Power BI report that shows diabetes and obesity growth in the US in the past 20 years.

Ask a question

Would you like an insight that is not currently displayed in the way you would want, but know the data can answer your question? In some cases, you can ask your own questions of the data in simple English language and get instant insights. We will use an example of survey data on internet access in London to demonstrate how.
