Excel BI VC presents Devin Knight: Using Power BI Parameters and Templates

Thu, Aug 18 2016 12:00 Central Daylight Time


Using Power BI Parameters and Templates

Power BI has proven itself capable of create solutions that can solve complex data problems in an easy to understand tool. The next step is learning how to make these solutions dynamic. With Power BI parameters and templates it is now not only possible to make individual datasets dynamic but you can also make your entire solution dynamic. Imagine building a solution, handing it off to your user, and all they need to do is plug in their server and database name to use what you’ve developed. Well that’s now possible with parameters and templates.
