I’m SUPER excited today to talk about an updated feature in Power BI Desktop. This month had a bunch of updates, all of which are pretty great. Some of my favorites are that bookmarks are now out of preview, among others. In fact, that full list of updates can be found here.
What I’d like to talk about however…was my FAVORITE new feature in months. What I’m talking about, is the newest (and AWESOMESAUCE) addition to Tooltips. Now, Tooltips has been around for a few years in PBI Desktop. However, they legitimately changed everything about tooltips. It’s better, faster, stronger, cooler. Trust me when I say you’ll be amazed at what they can do now.
If you want to know how some of these other cool things were made in the report. Here’s the links to the other posts that mention those.
