Using PowerBI After 2 Years Away - What Should I Know!?

Hey folks,

 

I stopped using PowerBI about 2 years ago due to a change in job. I am now starting with a new employer who uses it - I've loaded up desktop and it looks...kinds of the same as it did when I left it in 2022.

 

Just wondering what people think are the key changes I should be aware of. Happy to Google / YouTube these, so don't need massive explanations, but it would be great to know what the most significant things I should be aware of now I'm back in pbix game 😄

 

Many thanks,

 

Sam

@SamBerg_GS Nothing has really happened at all other than the addition of about 30,000 new preview features. Other than that, no real major changes. Maybe composite data models and hybrid tables. Everything is about Fabric these days instead of Power BI. I am attaching my PBIX where I have the releases tracked through April of this year. Very easy to see what features have been released in the last 2 years. Attached below signature.
