New(is) M language functions

Hi

I am an IT trainer, amongst other things I teach Power BI.  Keeping up with chnages to the various Power BI components is always a challenge, but there are very useful regular videos showing what's new in Power BI desktop - e.g. in the "Microsoft Power BI" channel.

 

My question is: but are there any good resources to show what's new in the "M" language?

 

I've seen a few new functions pop up in Intellisense (e.g. Date.DayOfWeekName) and this morning discovered some others which I haven't encountered before (e.g.  Date.QuarterOfYear) - they might be new-ish, or I just may have not had a need for them before.

 

Some guidance would be helpful - thanks!

Re: New(is) M language functions

Any functions that are not part of the standard documentation are in prevview mode, use at your own risk. That being said,

  1. open a new power bi report.
  2. Create a new blank query.
  3. Enter in the formula: 

 

= #shared​

 

  • Click through the records to see documentation for every library function/constant
  • Note: This list does not include additional functions avialable to custom connectors.
