Weekly Hot Topics




















Last week there were some great conversations in the Power BI Community Forums. From troubleshooting, to best practices, to step-by-step tutorials, you’ve all contributed some valuable content and made this place a great resource for fellow Power BI users around the globe. So, in the spirit of celebrating community, we thought we’d start a weekly blog post shouting out some of our top-kudoed authors, new members, and lively conversations from the previous week. Without further ado:
