Translations life cycle management must be considered seriously, as soon as we decide to translate Power BI reports. Translating a report into several languages takes some time, when we do it for the first time. But we expect that the maintenance of translations will be as easy as possible when the report will be modified or when a new language will be added.

There is an interesting functionality inside the Power BI Service in which a user can create an alert about a required numeric rule within a visualization. This will give them an early notification about a business process or allow them to keep up to date about specific situations at the exact moment that they occur. In my opinion, the alerts are only comfortable if you have the mobile app, due to instant notification, like a text message, instead of getting an email. Emails are not always checked right away.

The issue here is that all these configurations are only for the user that configures it. However, what can we do when we want to notify other users about the alert created? Power BI won't let you configure another email or user to get this notification. For this reason, we are going to use Power Automate (formerly known as Flow)

Have you ever wanted to create a visualization that changes based on any ranking selection you could make? You can change the size of your Power BI visuals based on ranking logic. Being able to dynamically select a slicer or item on a chart that changes the visualization on your report, into a more specific insight based on ranking, is just powerful and compelling.

Calculating for cumulative and rolling totals is quite common in Power BI to analyze data trends in business. In fact, it’s one of the most highly used patterns in analyzing historical data. While the two calculations are almost the same, there’s a slight difference between them, which is related to the logic used on each.  

 

The first tutorial will show you the basic cumulative total pattern, which includes the DAX functions, CALCULATEFILTERand MAX. Here, I calculate the cumulative total revenue for a certain year and quarter, which requires the ALLSELECTED function.
