Quite an active week in the Power BI ecosystem this week, so take your time digesting this content. Let's start with the one update from this week, which is the Power BI Developer community February 2020 update. Elsewhere, Michal Dvorak has provided a tool to Convert a Power BI Dataset To a Power BI Dataflow, David Eldersveld has described how to Use Windows Shortcuts to Open Power BI with a Default File, and Leila Etaati has written about the Decomposition Tree Visual in Power BI- Part Two.

No news at all from the Power BI blog this week*. However, a few practical blogs to highlight this week. DAX Studio - a tool that many of us use (and if you don't, you should!) - has had a new version (2.10.2) released. And if you use the DAX Formatter built into DAX Studio, or you access the same tool through the SQL BI website, you ought to know about a small change in the DAX formatting rules. Elsewhere, Erik Svenson has solved the mystery of why copying measures in Power BI Desktop doesn't always work, and Adam Saxton has described a couple of ways to sign-up for Power BI without a work email.
