July was another exciting month in the Power BI Community. We started a new blog series by the Support Team, fixed several community issues, published a new support article, and more. I'm telling you; this blog is packed full of good stuff!
@camargos88, is now following them on spot number 4, with @ryan_mayu, last week’s number 4. On spot number 5. Great job, everyone! As you can see, the leaderboard can change each month. If you’ve been doing an amazing job providing solutions, you might make it on here next time.

Questions About the Spanish Forum and Auto-Translated Posts
We’ve been seeing some questions about the way auto-syndication into the Spanish forum works in the Power BI Community. If you are not familiar with the Spanish forum and translated posts, here’s how they work:
Since May 2020, all post from the English Desktop forum have been "copied" to the Spanish forum, translated from English into Spanish. This allows Spanish speakers who are not fluent in English to follow the conversation. Your original posts are still available in English, in addition to their Spanish copies. You can ignore any notifications about Spanish versions of your posts.
You will see both the English and the Spanish version of your posts when navigating to your profile. If you click on the link to the English version of your post, you should be taken to the English version in the community.
Every post and reply that you make in the English Desktop forum is going to be automatically translated into Spanish. There is no option to disable this at this time, as the auto-translation is separate from your language settings for the community.
July 23rd marked the 5-year anniversary for Power BI. Can you believe it’s been this long since PBI was “born”? How time flies! As a thank you for those of us who have been with us since the beginning and anyone else who wanted to join in the birthday celebrations, Microsoft hosted a live event and T-shirt giveaway.
