1.  Reporting

The reporting update now includes perspectives support for the personalize visuals allowing for a much better end-user experience. You can now select multiple visuals at a time which allows you to better manage your data points. 

With this update also comes the rectangle select tool for visuals which gives you a more convenient way to select more data at once. The real-time reporting is  made easier through the updated dynamic formatting support to visuals. Together, all of these updates help give you smarter reporting and a far better user experience. 

2.  Analytics

With the new update comes the very exciting Direct Query Support for Q&A feature. Questions are important and getting them answered is even easier now that Power IB supports SQL direct query Sources. So, now you can ask questions efficiently by using Q& A. A submit button has also been incorporated to avoid overloading the Direct Query source.

  • The linear gauge is now full of new features including the custom data labels for each tier and horizontal and vertical orientation.
  • Advance pie and doughnuts are updated with the several chart options, styling options, data and number label formatting and the list is still long that you can find in the documentation.
  • The toggle switch, ADWISE road map, ArcGIS Maps have the Extending Admin capabilities for AppSource visuals. The detailed summary with the preview is available in this Microsoft article.

4.  Modelling

You may notice some changes with data preparation and data connectivity too. The new “Extract Table Using Examples” feature is very useful for data handling. This data connectivity provides changes in Cherwell connector, Automation Anywhere connector, and Acterys connector making them function far more seamlessly.

All of these features will greatly benefit financial professionals to manage their finances more efficiently. The financial functions of Acterys connector financial planning make the process to build financial reports with consideration to data accuracy for simpler.

5.  Template App
