Hello PowerBI-ers!


Case: Create a test demo for User to input data on a form which changes BI Viz real-time


Which is the best solution for User to input data on a database form?

Well, you would need a Direct Query (live) connection to your data obviously. The route that I have been seeing people take with this is to create a PowerApp application and then use the PowerApp visualization to embed it into the Power BI report.
